My Child Has Never Had Cavities. Why Does She Need X-rays?

Dental X-rays are valuable in helping dentists detect and treat oral health problems at an early stage.

Many oral conditions can't be detected on the basis of a visual and physical examination alone. X-rays allow dentists to evaluate and treat early-stage cavities, gum disease, missing or extra teeth, infections, dental tumors, and dental trauma.

How Often Should My Child Have X-rays?

Because each patient is unique, the frequency of X-rays varies from child to child.

Some of the factors that we consider when deciding whether or not X-rays are appropriate include the patient's medical and dental histories, examination findings, and environmental factors that affect oral health.

Are Dental X-rays Safe?

Yes! At Portland Children's Dentistry in Portland, OR, we use the latest in digital X-ray technology to ensure that the amount of exposure to radiation our patients receive is extremely small.

With safeguards such as protective lead aprons and tubes that restrict the beam to the area of interest, we make certain that you are receiving the safest, most contemporary care available.

If you have any questions about X-rays, contact our Portland office at (503) 893-2889 today!
