Safely Seeing Inside Teeth

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

 

Radiographs detect much more than cavities. For example, radiographs may be needed to survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone diseases, evaluate the results of an injury, or plan orthodontic treatment. Radiographs 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.

 

Milestone Kids Dentistry is particularly careful to minimize the exposure of their 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 radiographs represent a far smaller risk than an undetected and untreated dental problem. Lead body aprons and shields will protect your child. Our office utilizes digital radiography that ensures a significant reduction in radiation compared to traditional films by filtering out unnecessary x-rays and restricting 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.
