Children’s mouths are extremely small. As a result, traditional dental x-rays may be difficult for them. To protect your child, our office employs cutting-edge digital technology that has significantly improved the safety, comfort, and speed of x-rays. Because they can reveal issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye, X-rays are an important part of preventive and restorative care. X-rays, for example, allow us to assess how well permanent teeth are developing before they emerge.
They also assist us in determining whether cavities are developing between the teeth or beneath the tooth surface. This information is used by Dr. Ezeanolue to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan for your child. Problem areas may go undetected if x-rays are not utilized for your child.
Each child we see is unique, and the need for digital x-rays will vary from one to the next. Digital x-rays use far less radiation, reducing exposure by up to 95%. We invite you to call or visit us soon to learn more about how we use x-rays in our office.
