Dental technology continues to improve in both function and safety, and in our mission to provide your child with excellent dental care, we use digital X-rays as an advanced diagnostic tool. Digital radiography has brought X-ray technology to the next level, and it makes diagnoses and treatments faster, more comfortable and more convenient for you and you child. Digital X-rays take images of your child’s teeth with a digital sensor, and there is no film at all like what is used in traditional X-rays. Without the use of film, there are no chemicals involved in developing the images, and there is significantly less radiation exposure for your child. Digital X-rays produce high-quality images that can be viewed right away by our pediatric dentist and you; this allows us to provide your family with efficient care and diagnoses.
We can use digital radiography to identify several types of dental problems, including:
- Decay in between teeth
- Developmental abnormalities
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Breakage in existing dental fillings
Our pediatric dentist can use digital dental X-rays to plan treatments that will work best for your child. If you would like to learn more about digital radiography and our use of X-X-rays, when examining your child’s mouth, call us at 713-697-6453 to learn more about digital X-rays in Humble, Texas, and to make your child’s appointment with Dr. Shannon De Vera.
