How safe are dental X-rays?
Dental x-rays are safe. With the amazing advancements in that technology our x-rays today are 80 to 90% less radiation than they were even 20 years ago. As a matter of fact, just walking around, living your life, driving your car you're getting seven times the amount of radiation that you would get in the a full series of x-rays, which is 20 x-rays, and we only do that once out of every five years.
Since x-rays are the foundation to prevention and diagnosis, don't let your fear of radiation stop you from getting the treatment that you need.
