Assess and Treat Your Child’s Oral Health
Every child is different, and the need for X-ray scans will depend on your child’s age and dental condition. Pediatric dentists take extra care to minimize radiation exposure as much as possible. To achieve this goal, X-rays are not routinely taken at every dental appointment. Scans will only be recommended if they are deemed necessary for your child’s health. Additionally, we use advanced technology and extra safeguards to ensure the minimum amount of exposure possible for your child.
X-Rays Can Detect Problems
Untreated dental problems can do serious harm to your child’s health, and our experienced pediatric dentist knows when it is necessary to take scans of your child’s mouth. Some conditions that warrant X-ray evaluations include the following conditions:
- Shadows on the teeth
- Impacted teeth
- Visible cavities
- Cysts and other bone problems
- Heavy plaque
- Wisdom teeth
- Jaw development issues
- Crowded teeth
Before any treatments or scans are performed, your dentist will always consult with you to ensure you are comfortable and gain your full consent before continuing.
