Following the guidance of the state department of health, we have resumed all dental care services at select practices. If your child missed an appointment or was unable to make one due to coronavirus restrictions, please contact us to schedule as soon as possible to avoid cavities, infections or other potential complications. Your child’s health and safety are our main priority.
Intraoral X-rays are the most common type in dentistry. They give a high level of detail of the tooth, bone, and supporting tissues of the mouth. These X-rays allow dentists to:
Examine roots and the bony area around the tooth
Diagnose periodontal disease
Check on developing teeth
To take X-rays we use a digital X-ray machine to get a good picture of the teeth above and below the gum line. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays making them safer and easier to save to patient records.
