Radiography is the use of X-rays to view unseen hard-to-see objects or areas. Radiographs are a vital part of your child’s dental diagnostic process. Radiographs are needed to detect dental decay, survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone diseases, evaluate the results of an injury and plan orthodontic treatment. With contemporary safeguards, such as high-speed film, equipment filtering, and proper shielding, the amount of radiation received in a dental X-ray examination is extremely low.
Our doctors and team only obtain x-rays when absolutely necessary and customize the process for each child patient. Besides representing a standard for proper pediatric dental care, pediatric dentists use radiographs because they are much safer for your child than an undetected dental problem!
