Digital X-Rays

Awesome Kids Dental and Orthodontics uses the most advanced dental technology possible. This is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest dental treatment techniques. As a kids dentist, we are dedicated to providing your child with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our state of the art Anaheim office.

Is a digital X-ray safer for kids?

As Anaheim's top children's dentist office, we care about your child's health and well-being, we believe that reducing the amount of radiation exposure is extremely important. Although the amount of radiation used in dental X-rays is very small, the effect is cumulative, so all radiation counts. Digital X-rays can reduce your child's exposure to radiation by up to 80 percent!

Are there any advantages of digital X-Rays for kids?

  • We want your children to be as comfortable as possible during their dentist appointment, and digital X-rays eliminate the need to bite down on a sharp piece of film encased in plastic.
  • There is no need to wait for the X-ray film to be developed before it can be viewed, so the entire checkup can be a lot shorter.
  • The digital images can be enlarged and manipulated, giving the pediatric dentist and orthodontist a clearer, more detailed look at your child's teeth.
  • Because your child can see the image enlarged on a screen, they can better understand why taking care of their teeth is important.
  • It's better for the earth! There is no need to use harmful chemicals to process film.

As the premier pediatric dentist office in North Orange County, our dentists and orthodontists are focused on making your child's experience as comfortable as possible. At their next appointment, the pediatric dentist will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

precautions to ensure the X-ray process does not unduly damage the child’s cells and bodily tissues.

First, the child will be covered in a lead apron to protect the body from unnecessary exposure.  Second, the dentist will use shields to protect the parts of the face that are not being X-rayed.  Finally, the pediatric dentist will use high-speed film to reduce radiation exposure as much as possible.

If you have questions or concerns about dental radiographs or X-rays, please contact your pediatric dentist.
