The use of x-rays is considered a necessary component of a thorough dental examination. Without x-rays, we are unable to detect small cavities between the teeth, missing teeth, extra teeth, abscesses or other diseases that do not become obvious until they have progressed to a severe level. X-rays are recommended only when necessary to protect your child’s health.
