X-Rays For Children
There is no timetable for when your child should have a dental x-ray. The need for an x-ray can vary from child to child depending on the dental health of the child in question.
By having an X-ray at an early age can help to manage any potential risk. It is recommended that children as well as adults get checked every 6 months.
This can help to detect cavities developing between teeth. Whether X-rays are needed also depends on how well your child brushes and flosses, and your child’s diet.
Other children may not need X-rays taken as often. If X-rays aren’t taken when they are needed, problems can become worse.
