We Use Safe, Digital X-ray Imaging

At Kearney Pediatric Dentistry, safety and innovation are paramount. Our board-certified pediatric dentists, Dr. Brett Carranza and Dr. Eric Carranza, use modern digital X-ray technology that significantly reduces radiation exposure compared to traditional methods. Learn more about the types of X-rays we utilize and their safety features below.

Periapical X-Rays

Periapical X-rays are essential for a complete dental evaluation, showing the entire tooth from crown to root. These detailed images are captured using advanced digital technology, minimizing radiation while providing crucial diagnostic information.

Bitewing X-Rays

Bitewing X-rays are crucial for detecting decay between back teeth, such as molars and premolars. Our state-of-the-art digital X-ray equipment ensures the highest standard of care with minimal radiation exposure.

Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic X-rays, or Panorex, provide a comprehensive view of your child’s entire mouth. This painless technique aids in developing effective treatment plans and diagnosing potential issues such as jaw malformations and impacted teeth.

Exposure to Radiation

Ensuring the safety of our young patients is a top priority. The digital X-ray technology we use dramatically reduces radiation exposure, often equivalent to the minor amounts received during a day outside in the sun.
