Digital X-rays are safe for children and can help diagnose problems like tooth decay before they become severe.

Dental X-rays are a valuable diagnostic tool that can be used to identify tooth decay, extra teeth, bone defects, and cysts as well as check the progress of your child's previous dental treatments. Advances in technology now allow for digital x-rays, which reduce radiation exposure for your child by more than 50 percent, and produce high-quality images that can be viewed immediately by the dentist, parent, and child.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pediatric Digital X-Rays

Do kids really need dental X-rays?
Yes, dental x-rays are necessary, and it is recommended for kids just like adults. Dentists follow all established safety guidelines before dental radiographs are taken. Dental X-rays are very important in diagnosing and treatment planning. Dental x-rays in children help track dental development and diagnose dental decay. Dental decay may not always be visible clinically, especially when they are in between the teeth. Dental x-rays help pick up dental cavities that are not picked up on a visual exam, especially in between teeth. Radiation levels with dental X-rays are very minimal, and the benefit of acquiring x-rays for diagnosis and treatment planning far outweighs the low risk of radiation.
Are digital X-rays safe for kids?
Digital x-rays deliver less than 90% of radiation when compared to traditional radiographic films. Digital x-rays are extremely safe and commonly used in dental practices.
How often do kids really need dental X-rays?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends dental radiographs every six months. The regular radiographic exam helps diagnose dental decay at an early stage and treatment after that. Dental x-rays are also taken in case of emergencies such as trauma, toothache, etc. Radiographs are an effective and essential tool for tracking dental development and diagnosing many teeth/orofacial bone anomalies.
What age should kids get X-rays?
Dental x-rays are usually recommended around ages 2 to 3. The first set of x-rays might just include radiographs of the top and bottom front teeth. Radiographs of the posterior teeth are taken as molars erupt. X-rays are also taken in case of dental emergencies such as trauma, which is very common in children.
