Our pediatric dentist and team use digital X-rays to assess the oral health of your child and plan their treatments. Digital X-rays are an important part of our diagnostic arsenal, aiding us in the timely identification and treatment of potential issues, thus ensuring your child’s continued wellbeing.

Digital X-rays are completely safe for your child. This cutting-edge radiographic technology reduces radiation exposure during imaging by up to 90% compared to traditional film X-rays, thus mitigating any concerns about your child’s health. Additionally, the process is swift and comfortable, with images of your child’s dental structures being instantaneously projected onto a nearby monitor. These high-resolution images then help Dr. Reza Arzegar to detect any developing issues and create a treatment plan tailored to your child’s needs.

Digital X-rays are used to diagnose and treat a wide range of issues, including:

  • Cavities, including those between the teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Tooth root positioning
  • Soft tissue problems such as tumors, cysts and abscesses
  • Tooth fractures
  • Infection in the tooth nerves

X-rays are also used in planning treatments, such as orthodontic care and oral surgery procedures.
