Questions & Answers

Digital X-Rays

What are digital X-rays?

Digital X-rays are a diagnostic tool used to examine your child’s mouth and smile. Using a small digital sensor, this device captures images of your child’s teeth so that our pediatric dentist can diagnose any developing problems and plan treatments that meet your child’s needs.

Are digital X-rays safe?

Yes! In fact, digital X-rays produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays. Advances in technology continue to make X-rays even safer, and our pediatric dentist and team take every precaution to ensure your child’s safety and comfort during their appointment.

How do digital X-rays help?

Digital X-rays help our pediatric dentist and team diagnose and treat a wide range of problems, including:

  • Cavities and tooth decay
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Incorrect tooth root positioning
  • Soft tissue problems, such as tumors, cysts and abscesses
  • Fractured, cracked or broken teeth
