As pediatric dentists, we aim to minimize the exposure of our patients to radiation. Thankfully, at Children’s Dentistry, we have the technology to offer digital X-rays which significantly reduce exposure to radiation and provide the best available imaging to fully examine the dental structures of your child’s developing mouth and jaw.
X-rays detect much more than cavities. For example, X-rays may be needed to survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone diseases, evaluate the results of an injury, or plan orthodontic treatment. X-rays allow us to diagnose and treat oral conditions that cannot be detected otherwise. When dental problems are found and treated early, it is much better for your child.
Most pediatric dentists request radiographs approximately once a year. Every 3 years it is a good idea to obtain a complete set of dental X-rays.
As always, we will partner with you to decide what X-rays are best for your child. We use the newest procedures and techniques to ensure patient safety and comfort.
