Digital X-Rays

Our dentist, Dr. Shalini Shah, and our team want to make sure that your child’s time at A Kids Dentist is as easy and comfortable as possible. One way we do that is by using digital X-rays in Huntington Beach, California. These X-rays are often less invasive and are actually safer for your child than traditional X-rays. Our team can tell you more when you call 714-379-7755.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide your child with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your child’s teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays and require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentist can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide your child with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

Digital dental X-rays are used to plan many kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, orthodontics and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
