X-rays Aren't As Bad As They Used to Be

In the past two years I've had a lot of X-rays. I won't even count the MRI's. My feet have been x-rayed. My back has been X-rayed. Most of my recurring X-rays, though, have been done in the dentist's office. I used to really dread those X-Rays. As you may remember, you had to hold little pieces of film attached to cardboard in your mouth and they used to cut into the tender surrounding tissues. When I went to the dentist last week,  I was pleasantly  surprised to discover that dentals X-rays aren't as bad as they used to be.


Computers have made a real difference in how X-rays are done now. They no longer use that horrid cardboard to take film pictures. Now the X-rays are digital. I don't understand the new technology, but I do appreciate it. It's nice not to have to dread those dental X-rays anymore.
