The mission of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging (the Image Gently Alliance) is to improve safe and effective imaging care of children worldwide. At South Hill Pediatric Dentistry we have all taken the pledge to image gently when taking x-rays with your children!
There are many different types of x-ray images (pictures) that can be taken of children in the dental office to assist in diagnosis. These include the panoramic and orthodontic images as well as intra-oral images such as bitewings and periapicals (little films that go inside the mouth). All of these dental images are taken at the appropriate time for your child at South Hill Pediatric Dentistry. Have any further questions?
