What is the purpose of dental x-rays?

X-rays (radiographs) are a vital and necessary part of your child’s dental diagnostic process. Without them, certain dental conditions can and will be missed.

X-ray’s detect much more than cavities.

For example, x-rays may be needed to survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone diseases, evaluate the results of an injury, or plan orthodontic treatment.

X-rays allow dentists to diagnose and treat health conditions that cannot be detected during a clinical examination. If dental problems are found and treated early, dental care is more comfortable for your child and more affordable for you.

The American Dental Association recommends x-rays and examinations every six months for children with a high risk of tooth decay.

On average, most dentists request x-rays approximately once a year. Approximately every 3 years it is a good idea to obtain a complete set of x-rays, or panoramic/ bitewings or periapicals /bitewings.

Kids Care Dental and Orthodontics is particularly careful to minimize the exposure of our patients to radiation.

With contemporary safeguards, the amount of radiation received in a dental X-ray examination is extremely small. The risk is negligible. In fact, the dental exposure through X-rays represents a far smaller risk than an undetected and untreated dental problem. Lead body aprons and shields protect your child. Our equipment also filters out unnecessary rays and restricts the x-ray beam to the area of interest. High-speed film and proper shielding assure that your child receives a minimal amount of radiation exposure.
