Are Dental X- rays Safe ?
Dental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are safe. We take necessary precautions to limit the exposure to radiation when taking dental x-rays, including using modern, fast film that cuts down the exposure time of each x-ray. Most of our x-rays are taken digitally, which further decreases the exposure to radiation.
We are all exposed to natural radiation in our environment. The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources.
