The Cutting Edge of Technology
Digital X-rays, also known as digital radiography, are an important tool we utilize at Growing Smiles. A computerized way of taking images of your smile, we use digital X-rays to fully understand the health of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw. This allows us to suggest and provide the most effective treatment options. Digital radiography is used to detect:
Cavities and tooth decay
How teeth are developing
Tooth or bone fractures from dental trauma
The images produced by digital X-rays are quickly available for viewing on our computer monitors, which allows us to show your child photos of their teeth and help them understand what is going on with their smile. Since digital X-rays use up to 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays, they are also much safer for your child. Our caring dental team has experience in helping children feel comfortable when they are having their digital X-rays taken. If you have any questions about digital dental X-rays, we invite you to contact our pediatric dentists today. We are excited to help you understand your smile!
