Did you know Dental x-rays are one of the lowest radiation dose studies performed. A routine exam which includes 4 bitewings is about 0.005 mSv, which is less than one day of natural background radiation. It is also about the same amount of radiation exposure from a short airplane flight.
Dental X-rays can detect even the slightest traces of oral health problems at their earliest stages, such as cavities, gum disease, oral infections, and some types of tumors. It’s important to realize that dental X-rays are only taken when necessary. Listed below are just a few reasons why dental x-rays do more good than harm and have a huge impact on your oral health.
