At what age do children get their first X-rays?
Once the baby teeth in the back of the mouth are touching one another, usually around the age of two or three, we recommend taking X-rays. This first set consists of simple pictures of the upper and lower back teeth. A larger, full X-ray will be taken when the permanent teeth start coming in - usually around the age of six - to make sure your child's teeth and jaw are healthy and properly aligned.
