Do you take x-rays and use fluoride?

Pediatric Dentistry in Palos Heights, IL

Dental x-rays serve a very important purpose for children. They allow us to detect cavities between the teeth early, when fixing these cavities is less complicated. Also, x-rays can help us to assess your child’s growth and development. However, we use x-rays sparingly and only when indicated. We prescribe x-rays based on your child’s risk for developing cavities, not by universal rules.

Fluoride is typically applied to your child’s teeth after cleaning. Using fluoride after a cleaning helps replace the fluoride-rich layer of enamel that was removed during the cleaning.
