Since every child is unique, the need for dental x-ray films varies from child to child. Dental x-rays allow the dentist to see things about your oral health that cannot be seen by the naked eye. In general, children need x-rays more often than adults. Their mouths grow and change rapidly and they are more susceptible to tooth decay. But x-ray films detect much more than cavities. For example, x-rays may be needed to survey erupting teeth, diagnose bone diseases, evaluate the results of an injury or plan orthodontic treatment.
