Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
Dental X-Rays are safe.
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. Dental X-rays produce a very low level of radiation and are considered safe. Dentists take necessary precautions to limit the patient's exposure to radiation when taking dental X-rays. These precautions include using lead apron shields to protect the body, and using modern high sensitive films that cut down on the exposure time of each X-ray
