Digital X-Rays

At North Shore Pediatric Dentistry we use state of the art digital radiographs (x-rays) which significantly reduce radiation exposure compared to conventional x-rays by 25%. We also practice a conservative approach when determining every patient’s need for radiographs. Digital X-rays is reliable and versatile.
Here is a list of some of the benefits and conditions that can be diagnosed with the use of intra-oral digital radiography for children and adolescents:

  1. Reduction of radiation exposure
  2. Detection of caries (cavities)
  3. Assessment of growth and development
  4. Detection of periodontal disease
  5. Diagnosis of pathology (eg. cysts, tumours)
  6. Traumatic injuries
  7. Developmental and genetic conditions
  8. Patient and parent education
