Question Description

Research Paper:

Each student will be responsible for their own individual research paper on one of the following assigned topics (See Groups 1-4 below for topics).

Group Presentation:

Students with the same research paper topic will be grouped together, and are required to do a 10-15 minute class presentation in the form of a debate. Half of this group will support one side and the other half will argue the opposing side.

Group 1: Traditional (film) vs. Digital Dental Radiography

The main focus of this 3-4 page research paper (APA format) is to compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages for the assigned topic. Your individual paper will research BOTH sides, but you will support only one side for the group debate presented to the class. Your research should prepare you to take either side. Be able to support your argument based on your research findings.

See Rubric and for each category be sure to read all criteria to get details on how you will be graded.

You are required to utilize the writing center (verify your visit with a dated signature by writing center personnel). You are also urged to refer to the following handout and visit the following links:

Body of Paper: Should flow from an introduction to the main body to the conclusion.

Hello, kindly find the attached completed work. Thank You.

Traditional (film) vs. Digital Dental Radiography
Thesis: Despite the benefits associated with Digital radiography, there are still many dental
practitioners who have not adopted and they still use the traditional film based system, each has
its own advantages and disadvantages.
a) Advantages and Disadvantages of Digital Dental Radiography
b) Advantages and Disadvantages of Traditional (Film) Radiography


Traditional (film) vs. Digital Dental Radiography




Over the years, many advancements have been made in the dental care field. The
invention of the digital radiography system is one of the greatest milestones. However, many
dental practitioners have not yet adopted the digital system and are still using the traditional
radiography which is film based. In the research paper, the two systems which are the digital and
traditional radiography will be explored in terms of their advantages and disadvantages. Digital
radiography is associated with the benefits of less radiography, digital archiving, and better
quality of images among others but it has the limitations of patient discomfort because of the size
of sensors, high cost, and the need for training on use. Traditional radiography is less costly,
requires no extra training on computer use, uses plastic disinfectant covers, it is more
comfortable for the patient, and its images are not alterable. Its major limitations are; high
radiation exposure, inconvenience in terms of storage, more retaking of images, high possibility
of film loss and their maintenance is tedious and time-consuming. Digital radiography
