X-rays

Dental x-rays are used to not only diagnose tooth decay but also evaluates forming permanent teeth, can help diagnose bony pathologies, follows tooth and bony injuries, and helps orthodontic treatment planning. X-rays are needed to make complete oral health diagnosis and treatment plans. The frequency of x-rays are determined based on your child’s individualized needs and pediatric dentists are careful to minimize the radiation exposure.

At Petit Smiles, we act in accordance with the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry using only state-of-the-art, low radiation machines.

How often are they needed?

The frequency of x-rays are determined based on your child’s individualized needs and pediatric dentists are careful to minimize the radiation exposure. Children who have had dental decay in the past are more likely to experience decay in the future and will often have some type of x-ray every 6 months until they have been decay free for a year. Children at lower risk for decay will have x-rays on an annual basis. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines are closely adhered.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Vanessa is AMAZING! She is a true child whisperer......my two boys, ages 6 and 8, have seen her for the past 3 years. They actually look forward to visiting Dr.Vanessa's office, partly to see her and partly to leave with a cool toy. :) I am grateful to have found a pediatric dentist that makes a trip to the dentist a positive experience for both my children and myself. The office is brand new, beautifully decorated, always spotless and filled with kind, efficient staff members."
