Digital Radiograph — Pediatric
The Super Dentists use digital X-rays that reduce radiation exposure, while increasing the ability to detect cavities and other dental problems. Taking a digital radiograph is more comfortable for kids. In addition, digital X-rays are instantaneous and results can be shared with other caregivers any where in the world.
Because your child’s safety is our utmost priority, The Super Dentists are particularly careful to minimize children’s exposure to radiation. When The Super Dentists X-ray teeth, we have children wear a lead apron for their protection. While dental X-rays represent only a minimal amount of radiation, The Super Dentists X-ray teeth only when absolutely necessary. A few reasons to X-ray teeth are to make diagnoses such as hidden cavities, examine a child’s bone health and plan orthodontic treatments.
The Super Dentists’ cofounder and chief orthodontist, Dr. Kami Hoss, is a leading authority on dental imaging. He lectures on the field of Video Imaging and Technology and Growth Prediction of Children and Adolescents.
Digital Radiograph — Orthodontics
Panoramic and cephalometric X-rays are taken for orthodontic treatments. Because no film is placed into the mouth, people with a gag reflex prefer this dental X-ray technique. To take a panoramic dental X-ray, the patient is seated while an X-ray tube moves outside of the jaw from one side to the other. With panoramic dental X-rays, only one image needs to be taken so there is less radiation exposure and there is less risk of blurring the image.
This advanced digital radiography delivers dependable 2D images of the entire mouth and jaw for diagnosing, planning treatment and sharing results with patients and parents. These X-rays are super fast, clear and will help your super orthodontist create your awesome smile.
