We use advanced technology to provide your child with the best possible care.
At Smile Cove Pediatric Dental, we use the latest dental technology to care for your child, including digital X-rays. Digital X-rays have changed the field of pediatric dentistry because they have so many benefits that make it easier to diagnose and treat our youngest patients in the Tampa, Florida area.
Radiation exposure is up to 80% lower with digital X-rays than with standard film X-rays. This is essential since children are more sensitive to radiation. Also, digital X-rays make images almost instantly, so there’s no need to wait for the film to be developed.
Not only that, but digital X-rays make high-resolution images that can be zoomed in so that dental structures can be seen more clearly. This level of detail is essential to correctly diagnose dental problems, especially in children whose teeth are smaller and whose dental framework is still growing.
Another advantage is that digital X-ray pictures can be shown on computer screens during consultations, so our team can easily talk with you and your children while showing X-rays. This method helps you understand your child’s oral health and the treatments we suggest for their care. Also, it facilitates open communication about options, allowing us to work as a team.
Adding digital X-rays to Tampa pediatric dentistry is a big step forward that puts your child’s safety, comfort, and general health first. Our team uses this and other technology to ensure your child gets the best possible care.
