Dental radiographs, also known as dental x-rays, are essential diagnostic tools used to help us identify and address concerns such as cavities, orthodontic issues, bone injuries, and early-stage diseases. These concerns aren’t always visible through a routine examination, hence the need for X-rays.
The frequency of X-rays is tailored to each individual patient’s needs. We take every precaution to ensure your child’s safety during the X-ray process including lead aprons, digital sensors, and a portable x-ray machine (Kavo Aribex Nomad Pro) to minimize radiation exposure to their delicate bodies and faces.
Your child’s well-being is our utmost priority, and we’re dedicated to providing the care and attention they deserve.

Why Dental X-Rays?
Dental X-rays, or dental radiographs, are essential diagnostic tools in pediatric dentistry. They play a pivotal role in identifying and addressing dental issues that may not be visible during routine clinical examinations. Our team understands the unique needs of children’s oral health, and dental X-rays allow us to detect concerns such as cavities, orthodontic misalignment, bone injuries, and diseases at their earliest stages. Guided by the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), our approach emphasizes both effective diagnostics and your child’s safety.
Are Dental X-Rays Safe for My Child?
Absolutely. At Alligator Dental, we prioritize the safety of your child. Dental X-rays emit only minimal amounts of radiation, and we take extensive precautions to minimize potential risks. Our use of lead aprons further ensures your child’s safety during the X-ray procedure.
How Often Will My Child Need Dental X-Rays?
The frequency of dental X-rays depends on your child’s dental needs and risk factors. Higher-risk children, such as those prone to tooth decay or orthodontic issues, may require more frequent X-rays for effective monitoring. Our experienced pediatric dentists will tailor the X-ray schedule to your child’s specific situation.
Will My Child Experience Discomfort During the X-Ray Process?
No need to worry. Our team is skilled at working with children, and we take extra care to create a comfortable and reassuring environment. The X-ray process is quick and minimally invasive, ensuring your child’s comfort.
Can I Accompany My Child During the X-Ray Procedure?
Absolutely. We encourage parents to be present during the X-ray procedure to comfort and support their children. Our dental professionals will guide you through the process and address any concerns.
