I heard dental X-rays will expose me to radiation. Are they safe?


X-rays are a critical part of maintaining your oral health and helping detect teeth, gum and bone diseases early. Modern technology has greatly improved the safety of X-rays. At D.R. Dental, we use digital X-rays. This technology further reduces the amount of radiation emitted during the radiographic procedure. In addition, we provide high coverage lead gowns with a thyroid coverage to protect your body from the X-rays. This combination means that you have a very low risk of experiencing health impacts due to the X-rays. In fact, you are at a greater risk of serious dental complications by avoiding oral examinations.
