Transillumination X-Ray Free Pediatric Dentistry


Your and your child's health are our primary concern in every aspect of our pediatric dental treatments, and that's why we're pleased to offer radiation-free cavity detection at our office. Instead of taking x-rays that subject patients to harmful radiation, we can now use a portable, handheld device equipped with powerful transillumination technology to detect cavities. 

Transillumination uses near-infrared light to help our Atlanta pediatric dentists identify occlusal, interproximal, and recurrent carious lesions and cracks (cavities), even between the tightest contacts between teeth. The technology makes healthy tooth enamel appear transparent, while highlighting porous lesions and cavities that absorb the light. The near-infrared light used in this technique is much lower-energy than x-rays, producing lower levels of radiation, and it's ideal for patients who can't tolerate larger digital film such as our younger pediatric dental patients.

The transillumination technique gives us a new option for spotting cavities and dental decay without the use of radiation or x-rays, allowing for healthier, more convenient treatment for all of our patients.
