Sometimes, your child may need to get a dental X-ray when he or she goes to the dentist.
Find out why dental X-rays are an important part of preventing tooth and gum disease and why your children should get them regularly as part of their dentist visits.
Did you know that the dentist can only see about a third of a tooth with the naked-eye? That leaves a lot of tooth surface that could be hiding issues such as growing cavities.
Cavities are signs of decay—an infection in living tissue that will spread if not treated right away.
Luckily, dental X-rays can show dentists the other parts of the tooth as well as other problems. The problems a dental X-ray can show include:
Dental X-rays can also show how well the upper and lower teeth line up with one another.
There are two types of dental X-rays that show dentists different parts of your child’s mouth—Bitewing and Panoramic.
Keeping tabs on your children’s teeth as they grow up is an important part of making sure they stay healthy and disease-free, and getting dental X-rays can make a big difference.
