My 9 yr son has extra baby teeth and extra adult teeth that are trying to come in. His Ortho Dr. wants him to have a Cone Beam scan to get a better view of the extra adult teeth. Everyone is giving me grief over the amount of radiation in the scan. Do I take him or find a new Ortho?

  • If you are very apprehensive then take the second opinion as it is difficult to comment on ths with out seeing the case. But if it is mandatory then you should go for this.Asall the scans are done after taking proper precautions so that the child is not exposed to the radiations.
