Many diseases of the teeth, surrounding tissues, and bone cannot be seen when the dentist examines your child’s mouth. Dental radiographs provide valuable information that can help the dentist make a decision about your child’s oral health and treatment needs. They help the dentist see areas of decay between the teeth or around existing restorations, bone destruction from a tooth infection, effects of trauma, and the position of the unerupted adult teeth. At Say Ahhh!, we use digital dental radiographic exams that use very low levels of radiation, and are completely safe for your child.
