At State Street Dental, we prioritize your child’s dental health and comfort. One of the essential tools we use to ensure their wellbeing is pediatric dental X-rays. These X-rays allow us to thoroughly examine your child’s teeth, jaw and surrounding structures, enabling us to detect issues early and provide prompt treatment.

We use advanced digital X-rays, which are safer and more efficient than traditional film X-rays. Digital radiography produces up to 90% less radiation, making it a much safer option for your child. The process is also quicker and more comfortable. Images are captured instantly and displayed on a monitor, giving us immediate access to detailed visuals of your child’s dental health.

Pediatric dental X-rays are invaluable for diagnosing a range of conditions, including:

  • Cavities and tooth decay, particularly in areas that are not visible during a routine exam.
  • Developmental abnormalities that might affect your child’s future oral health.
  • Issues with tooth root positioning that could impact the alignment and health of your child’s teeth.
  • Soft tissue problems such as tumors, cysts and abscesses that might not be noticeable otherwise.
  • Fractures in the teeth that need immediate attention to prevent further damage.
  • Infections in the tooth nerves that require timely intervention to avoid more serious complications.

Our dentist may also use these X-rays to plan and monitor treatments such as orthodontic care and oral surgeries. By having a clear and precise understanding of your child’s dental condition, we can create personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs.

We understand that, as a parent, you may have concerns about the use of X-rays. Rest assured, we take every precaution to ensure your child’s safety and comfort during the procedure. Our team is always available to answer any questions you might have about pediatric dental X-rays and to discuss any concerns.
