Kurt Halum Pediatric Dentistry

Digital X-Rays

Children’s mouths grow quickly and changes occur that cannot be seen in a visual exam. Your child’s dental exam will include x-rays to evaluate the teeth and mouth for conditions such as cavities, erupting teeth, extra or missing teeth and bone disease. Dr. Halum recommends cavity detecting bitewing x-rays every 6 months. To protect your child, our office uses the most recent digital technology, which has greatly improved the safety, comfort, and speed of x-rays:

  • Exposure to radiation is reduced by 80 – 90%!
  • With images available in 8-10 seconds, there is no waiting for film to develop and visits are shorter.
  • Images can be enhanced to show the fine details, allowing the doctor to diagnose conditions in the very early stages.
  • Typically we start taking x-rays as young as age 3.

With digital x-rays, the staff at Kurt Halum DMD can provide the safest and most pleasant dental experience for you and your child.
