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,

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.
