Why does my child need x-rays?
As your children grow, so do their teeth, jaws and surrounding structures. To ensure that everything it on track, regular x-rays will help Dr. Monfredi catch any potential problems as your child’s teeth develop. Beyond this, x-rays help monitor your child’s growth until their jaw reaches the size it’ll be as an adult. At Monfredi Family Dental, we offer digital x-rays and x-rays completed by a Panorex, which provides a 360 degree image of your child’s mouth, head and sinuses. This is beneficial because it allows Dr. Monfredi to see certain types of structural problems, like asymmetry between the two sides of the mouth.
