Digital X-rays are an important tool for any dentist, especially when it comes to treating children. They allow us to properly monitor your child’s development by providing insight into their dental health that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
The Benefits of Digital X-Rays
A dental X-ray provides a complete blueprint of your child’s mouth. This helps Dr. Anu to supervise your children’s teeth as they erupt and monitor for any anomalies as well as detect dental problems that can’t be seen in a visual examination. Like with any problem, the earlier we can detect cavities, bone diseases or tooth injuries, the sooner we can begin working to prevent or treat them.
Dental x-rays have been around for a very long time but some parents are still hesitant to allow their kids to be x-rayed. Rest assured that all of the X-rays performed at Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry use digital technology which has low radiation and is less invasive. The levels of radiation involved in a dental x-ray are minimal and, as a precaution, we use a lead apron to shield the rest of your child’s body from additional radiation.
