Small X-Rays that accommodate small mouths

Small X-rays that accommodate small mouths are typically call “kids intraoral X-rays.” They are designed specifically for children’s smaller mouths, using smaller film or digital sensors that are more comfortable for children to tolerate. In our office, we use an X-ray machine called the spaceship. It’s specifically designed for children since the child has to keep their head still while the spaceship orbits around the child’s head taking a X-ray photo. Kids dental X-rays can provide valuable information for dentists to detect tooth decay, identify any developmental problems, and monitor the growth and eruption of new teeth. At SmileTown: Just Kid’s Dentistry, we recommend your child receive their first X-rays by the age of three years old.
