A digital dental X-ray, also known as a radiograph, is a valuable diagnostic tool that gives us the ability to diagnose dental problems not visible to the naked eye. At Pediatric Dental Care we use digital dental X-rays to provide your child with a precise diagnosis and a pain-free, comfortable dental experience.
There are many benefits of using digital xrays:
- Shorter dental appointments
- Enhanced imaging
- Highly effective
- Safe and convenient

The Age 1 Visit is the Equivalent of a Well-Baby Check-up
Your baby’s first dental visit at the age of 1 year is just as important as his/her well-baby check with your pediatrician. This visit provides an opportunity for you to learn about the oral health of your baby, as well as how to prevent most problems from occurring, or easily address any concerns in the early stages.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), a timely first dental appointment can set the tone for a lifetime of great oral health, especially considering that tooth decay is 5 times more prevalent among children than asthma, making it the most common chronic childhood disease.

STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY
The first of its kind, the dental Wand employs a computerized anesthetic delivery system that virtually eliminates the pain or feeling of the injection pricking the gums. This in turn prevents anxiety and apprehension when in the dentist’s chair.

How the Wand Works
The wand is a computerized system used to deliver local anesthetic (instead of a needle), accurately enough to numb one or more teeth without numbing your lips or side of the face.
