Pretty much the same except the image is output electronically so is very quick. Same radiation.

Wrong. Radiation dosage is at least 1/3 of original and more likely to be 1/10th. Depends on the age of the system.

Besides, read this:

Yeah. Dental is probably one of the most hilariously small sources of radiation. Look at exposure limits and charts, a single flight does YEARS worth of dental x-ray in an hour.

The first time you visit a DDS they are going to do a full series: Panoramic and 4 Bitewing radiographs or 7 vertical radiographs. It all depends on your condition, regularity of visits, age, bone level, etc.

Why?

Because of the legal system. They have to CYA.

Future visits should have none to up to 4 images.
About every 5 years do the panoramic one again.

Look at the second pic on the first page on the left.

That is the "old way"
The first time you visit a new DDS, you might get that.
That is 18 images.
The new way uses a digital panoramic radiograph:

and only 4 or 7 of the old way images.
