At Romney Pediatric Dental, we understand that your child’s smile can constantly change and develop. We also believe that fully understanding a smile is one of the first steps to providing the necessary and appropriate treatments. As part of this effort, we provide dental X-rays in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dental X-rays, also known as dental radiography, is the process by which we take powerful images of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw. These images are used to diagnose conditions and help create an effective treatment plan. Dr.Romney generally uses dental X-rays to detect:
- Hidden tooth decay and disease
- Developmental abnormalities
- Bite misalignments
- Cysts or abscesses
- Impacted wisdom teeth in adolescents
- Bone loss in the jaw
The images taken will become an important part of your child’s dental history and record. We normally take a series of dental X-rays once a year as part of your child’s routine checkups or as we feel it is necessary to the health of their smile. Our dentist and dental team work hard to help your child feel comfortable as they are having their dental X-rays taken. If you would like to learn more about dental X-rays, we hope you will call our friendly dental team. We would love to discuss how dental X-rays are taken and what you and your child can expect when visiting our office.
