Dental X-rays

What are Dental X-Rays?

X-rays are a valuable tool in the examination process allowing the dentist to not only detect and prevent cavities, but also monitor oral disease, manage and evaluate trauma, and monitor the development of teeth. In addition, X-rays help monitor the progress of past dental therapy that may have been completed.

    I have taken my daughter to Peak for the past year and our experience has been awesome. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. My daughter actually enjoys going to the dentist! Dr. Chris is great with her and keeps me updated on any issues we may encounter in the future. Their costs are very reasonable
  • Amazing place! Dr is great. Very welcoming, clean, and punctual. Has great entertainment for the kids and is just amazing!!! Highly recommend.

    This is the BEST pediatric dentist in north county! All of the staff is so friendly and welcoming. Their office is small, but very cozy. It is extremely clean and modern and my 4 and 3 year old kids love coming here! They really take great care of their patients and do a great job

    Dr Dixon and his staff have always been so thoughtful and conscientious with our children. He has always been available to us when there’s been an emergency. I appreciate that he is supportive of our choices as parents to be cautious as times, and having a “let’s monitor it and see” approach at other times.

How often are X-rays needed and what can be expected?

Even though x-rays are low in radiation, every effort is made to minimize the amount of radiation exposure. Images are taken every 6 months – 18 months, depending on each child’s individual circumstances and needs. Each child wears a lead apron. We use the latest digital technology allowing us to take x-rays with the lowest radiation possible. Comfortability and safety are our biggest priorities.
