Dental X-Rays for Children

BOOK APPOINTMENTPATIENT FORMS

To provide the essential care your child needs we use dental X-rays in our office. These dental X-rays are essential in treating problems such as cavities, bone diseases, orthodontic alignment, bone injuries and tooth decay. These are problems that the naked eye just can’t see.

Dental X-rays are performed with radiographic equipment and this equipment does produce radiation. Technology today has made many modern advances on dental X-ray equipment that produce extremely low doses of radiation.

Febres Dentistry for Children has the most modern dental X-ray equipment available and delivers the smallest amount of radiation necessary to ensure your child’s safety.
