We see children in our office as young as age 2 1/2 yrs old. We do not expose children to x-rays unless a problem is noted – requiring further visualization. First bite wing x-rays for kids with no problems may be recommended at age 6. A panoramic x-ray may be recommended for children age 10 to monitor tooth development. If an orthodontic referral is made, we will let the orthodontic specialist determine x-ray requirements for your child.
