At Noble Pediatric Dental, we use a digital radiograph system, an advanced form of x-ray inspection which produces a digital radiographic image instantly on a computer. This technique uses child-sized x-ray sensitive plates to capture the x-ray. The dentist can quickly see if a clear, quality image has been captured, and can use the images to diagnose weak spots or cavities.
What to expect
The patient wears a protective cover to reduce radiation exposure. A small square is placed in the mouth (often with the child biting down to hold it in position) and the image is captured. Dr. Jaclyn will discuss your child’s x-rays with you. It’s fun to see your child’s developing teeth!
