Our pediatric dentist and team are committed to your child’s health and safety. We use digital X-rays in Biloxi and Ocean Springs, Mississippi, to examine your child’s mouth and smile, and we take great care to ensure that they remain comfortable and safe throughout the imaging process.

Among the advanced dental technologies used in our office are digital X-rays. Digital X-rays make the imaging process faster and more comfortable to ensure that your child receive precise and effective care without stress or discomfort.

Unlike traditional X-rays, digital radiography relies on digital sensors to capture images of your child’s teeth and supporting structures. These sensors produce significantly less radiation than film X-rays – in fact, they reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%, making them extremely safe for children – and do not require the use of chemicals for developing images. Instead, our pediatric dentist can instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide your child with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Digital X-rays are frequently used to diagnose problems such as:
• Tooth decay and cavities
• Developmental abnormalities
• Improper tooth root positioning
• Cysts and abscesses
• Fractures in existing fillings
• Tumors
• Infection in the tooth nerves
• Bone loss

Our caring pediatric dentist also use digital X-rays to plan your child’s treatments, including orthodontic treatment and tooth extractions.
