X-Rays are important tools used by dentists and orthodontists to identify problems with the teeth. X-Rays provide dentists with highly detailed photos of the teeth, bones, and supporting tissues.
Many parents have questions regarding X-Rays for their children. Below are a few of the most commonly asked questions and their answers, so that you can feel confident and comfortable with your child’s dental X-Rays.
Most children receive their first dental X-Ray around between the ages of 5-7 when the adult teeth begin to erupt. These X-Rays will help determine if the teeth are coming in correctly and to make sure there’s enough room in the mouth for all the adult teeth.
The amount of radiation that your child is exposed to during a single set of dental X-Rays is very small. We will also provide your child with a lead apron, which will protect their body from the radiation. So, there is no reason for concern!
