Sponsored Brief: I don't want X-rays for my child!

Aug 02, 2019

Periodic dental X-rays are an integral part of a thorough dental examination.  They help show areas of the teeth and mouth that are not clinically visible.  The two main types in pediatric dentistry are Panoramic X-rays (that scan the upper and lower jaws) and intraoral X-rays (that check for cavities and specific problems).

As a parent myself, I share the instinct to protect my child from radiation and chemicals that can harm their growing bodies.  Yet, countless times, a parent refuses X-rays, and tiny, easy-to-manage cavities grow bigger and bigger.

At Stellar Kids, we strongly encourage a baseline set of quality X-rays.  Then, we discuss the appropriate periodicity of future X-rays. This limits radiation exposure, yet ensures your child receives appropriate and timely care.

Together, we'll ensure your child enjoys the best oral health possible
