There is very little risk in dental x-rays. In order to provide your child with the best possible care, we use low radiation, digital x-rays as a diagnostic tool. Dental x-rays are vital for identifying cavities and erupting teeth as well as for diagnosing the effects of trauma and planning orthodontic treatment. In order to reduce exposure, we use minimum radiation dosages, protective lead aprons and the most modern equipment available. The risk of undiagnosed and untreated dental problems is far greater than the risk posed by dental x-rays.
