Digital X-Rays For Children

Digital X-Rays are safer for kids with less radiation than traditional dental x-raysDentists look at smiles in two ways. The first is by looking at one with nothing but a bright light and their eyes. The second way to examine teeth and gums is by looking at X-rays.

With an X-ray, pediatric dentists can get a clearer picture of how your child’s teeth are doing. To ensure your child’s safety with the X-ray process, we’ve taken two precautions.

  • First — we use only digital X-rays, which emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional radiography.
  • Second — we follow all X-ray guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

At Smileville Family Dental, our board certified pediatric dentists ensure that your child receives the kind of safe but thorough care he or she needs for a healthier smile.
