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.

    All Staff from the front desk to the Dentist assistant are all courteous, polite, friendly with exceptional attention to detail. The office is very clean. They offer entertainment from the lobby to the dentist chair. Dr. Chris is awesome. He makes kids feel at ease and explains everything in laments terms. We highly recommend this

    We love Peak Pediatric Dentistry for our 10 year old. Dr. Dixon and his staff are kind and great with kiddos. We feel totally taken care of from reception to strong teeth! They also have great relationships with other practitioners in SD and have referred a great orthodontist and adult dentists. We love them!

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.
