Innovative Care for Lifetime Dental Health
A child's dental health story starts before their first tooth arrives. Building a good dental plan ensures that your child will have a healthy and attractive smile. That's important for confidence, but dental health is also related to overall health issues.
Dentists traditionally took x-rays on scheduled intervals or because there was an issue with the teeth. This process was often inconvenient and uncomfortable. You might remember the apparatus that you needed to lock in your teeth and the dentist leaving the room during the process. This was because those old fashioned x-rays were also high in radiation.
Why are Digital X-Rays Better?
At Englewood Pediatric Dentistry, we use digital x-rays. Digital x-rays offer a clearer and better view of the whole mouth and bone structure. This means that we'll be able to work with patients to develop a dental plan that keeps their mouth healthy through all of the stages.
During a child's life, there might be issues of misalignment, lost teeth, and the need for removal of wisdom teeth. Digital x-rays help to plan for early detection and intervention and you can plan ahead for new procedures.
Digital images can be viewed on-screen within minutes, rather than waiting for the images to develop or for a second appointment. This makes the process easier and more affordable.
