Dental X-rays are an essential aspect of pediatric dental care, providing our dentist and experienced dental team with vital insights into your child’s oral development. We use advanced X-ray technology to ensure a safe, comfortable and informative experience for your little one, helping us detect any issues that are not visible during a regular dental checkup.
The Role of Dental X-Rays in Pediatric Dentistry
Dental X-rays are particularly important in pediatric dentistry for several reasons:
- Detecting Hidden Cavities: Identifying cavities between teeth or under fillings that are not visible during an oral exam
- Monitoring Tooth and Jaw Development: Assessing the growth of emerging teeth and the development of your child’s jaw
- Identifying Orthodontic Needs: Helping in early detection of orthodontic issues
- Observing Underlying Permanent Teeth: Checking the position and health of teeth yet to erupt
