Computerized charts have many advantages. It is virtually impossible to lose an X-ray. Each x-ray is digitally matched to a chart when it is taken. Also, each X-ray is time-stamped to allow us to monitor them.
As digital charts are stored on a secure server, they are backed up daily and they can never be lost. The data can be reviewed in the dental operatory, the doctor’s private office or remotely should you have an emergency.
A digital chart cannot be contaminated with bacteria. It is a much better system.
