Radiographs or X-Rays are a vital and necessary part of your child’s dental exam. Without them, certain dental conditions can and will be missed. X-Rays detect much more than cavities. Radiographs may be needed to survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone diseases, evaluate the results of an injury, or plan orthodontic treatment. X-Rays allow dentists to diagnose and treat health conditions that cannot be detected during a clinical examination.
The safety of your child as always is our primary concern in the dental environment. The staff at Kidz-R-Kool Pediatric Dentistry are specially trained in the latest techniques with pediatric dental care. We utilize the most advanced digital, low radiation dosage radiographic technology, including lead aprons and high speed film to ensure your child’s complete comfort and safety.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends radiographs and examinations every six months for children with a high risk of tooth decay.
Pediatric dentists are particularly careful to minimize the exposure of their patients to radiation. With contemporary safeguards, the amount of radiation received in a dental X-Ray is extremely small. Dental X-Rays represent a far smaller risk than an undetected and untreated dental problem.
