We do not usually take radiographs just for the purpose of screening and not every child will need dental radiographs every visit. However, radiographs are necessary to diagnose and monitor oral diseases and dental development. At Kids on 1st Dentistry we use only the most modern technology in digital imaging to reduce your child’s radiation exposure – up to 99% less radiation exposure than film-based radiography. We further protect your child during the taking of radiographs through the use of a lead-free protective apron. Radiographs will be recommended only after reviewing previous radiographs, considering your child’s history, and assessing their caries risk.
