At Silicon Valley Pediatric Dentistry, we do not require you to take a radiograph at every visit. Please let us know if you are concerned with radiographic exposure and would like us to take less radiographs.


Additionally, we offer digital radiographs. Digital X-rays reduce radiation exposure 4 times compared to conventional analog radiographs


We realize that taking X-rays can be difficult for some people (especially our little ones) so we are one of the only pediatric dental offices to offer both Intra-oral and Extra-oral X-rays.

Conventional Digital

Intra Oral Radiographs


Extra Oral Radiographs


Taken outside the mouth to prevent gagging

Additionally they offer a lot more imaging than conventional radiographs at reduced radiation

with our unique Extra-oral X-Rays that have

less radiation then conventional analog radiographs


How We Take Our Radiographs


Traditional Intra-oral X-rays can be

used on small and large kids alike. (Figure 1)

Demonstrated by Dr. Scotty...

the biggest kid of all :)

With Extra-oral X-rays, nothing goes into the mouth and look at the great image

we are able to get (Figure 2).

Great for small kids to prevent gagging.
