Digital Dental X-Rays
Advanced Technology in Our Dental Office
Dental X-rays are important tools in pediatric dental care. They allow pediatric dentists to diagnose and treat conditions that cannot be detected during clinical examination. When dental problems are diagnosed early on, treatments are usually simple and more affordable.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a routine X-ray exam every six months to detect cavities developing between teeth of children with a high risk of tooth decay. Children with a lower risk require X-rays less frequently. Children require dental X-rays more often than adults. Their mouths grow and change rapidly. And they are also more susceptible to tooth decay than adults.
At Kids Smile Pediatric Dentistry, we are especially careful to limit the amount of radiation to which children are exposed. Proper shielding and digital x-rays are used to ensure safety and minimize the amount of radiation.
