Detecting Dental Issues Before They Develop
A visual inspection of your teeth can help a trained dentist spot some problems, but nothing is as effective as a modern x-ray examination. Today, x-ray technology is inexpensive, quick, painless, and can help your dentist spot even the smallest problems in their earliest stages of development so they can be quickly treated to prevent them from growing worse.
Dr. Mimy’s Children’s Dentistry, our team is highly-trained and certified in x-ray technology to offer you a complete examination. Our state-of-the-art equipment is designed to help spot cavities, decay, and other dental problems in even their smallest, most minor forms so that your child can get the care and treatment they need with precision and accuracy. We have even taken preventive measures to protect your child’s health by utilizing strictly low-exposure radiography equipment that limits exposure by up to 90% compared to a traditional machine.
A dental x-ray can reveal dental issues, including:
- Tooth decay
- Existing or forming cavities
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- The presence and development of permanent teeth
- Defective fillings or restorations
X-rays can even reveal existing damage between teeth, helping your dentist spot issues they would otherwise never find with their eyes alone. As a result, a quality x-ray examination once a year can help your dentist spot and treat problems with your child’s teeth before they can become complicated and possibly even detrimental. Our team is committed to helping your child get the best care available and an x-ray exam is one of our most valued tools for doing so.
