Our team uses digital X-rays to examine your child’s mouth and smile. Digital X-rays are one of the many diagnostic tools available at our office. They are used to help us diagnose and treat potential problems as early as possible so that we can help you keep your child’s mouth and smile healthy.
Digital X-rays are very safe for use. In fact, digital radiography produces up to 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays. The imaging process is also quick and comfortable, with the captured images of your child’s mouth being displayed almost instantly on a nearby monitor. These detailed images of your child’s teeth and supporting structures make it easy for our dentist to identify developing problems and plan an appropriate treatment.
Digital X-rays allow us to diagnose and treat a variety of problems, including:
- Cavities, including tooth decay between the teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Soft tissue problems, such as tumors, cysts and abscesses
- Fractures in the teeth
- Infection in the tooth nerves
Our dentist may also use X-rays to plan your child’s treatments, including oral surgery procedures and orthodontic care.
