Protect Your Child’s Smile With Digital X-Rays

At Discovery Children’s Dentistry & Orthodontics in Carlsbad, we are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care for your child's oral health. As part of our commitment to excellence, we’re proud to utilize advanced dental digital X-ray technology to enhance diagnosis and treatment planning.

What are digital X-rays, and how do they benefit my child’s smile?

Digital X-rays provide clear and detailed images of your child's teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures. These images allow our pediatric dentists to detect and diagnose a wide range of oral health and orthodontic issues that may not be visible during a visual examination alone. With this technology, we can identify tooth decay, cavities, impacted teeth, bone loss, infections, and even developmental abnormalities.

In addition to the fact that images are captured quickly, reducing the time spent in the dental chair and minimizing any discomfort or anxiety your child may experience, digital X-rays also emit significantly less radiation compared to traditional film X-rays, making them a safe and reliable option for patients.

How often should my child have these X-rays performed?

Regular dental examinations, including digital X-rays, are essential for maintaining your child's oral health. We recommend that children have their mouths examined every six months or as advised by our pediatric dentists to ensure that any potential issues can be detected and addressed promptly.

Do you have questions about this technology, or would you like to have your child’s oral structures examined by our caring and skilled team? Call us today to schedule an appointment!
