At some point you will find ourselves on a situation thinking about how the X-rays can be can noxious for our health. Modern x-rays are perfectly safe and very low doses of radiation are now used when taking them. Dental x-rays are one of the most important tools for a dentist to check on your teeth. With them, the dentist can see what is inside a tooth as well as the condition of the gums, the teeth and the bone below the surface.
Some of the patients have express their concern with how safe x-rays are as studies suggest that exposure to it might eventually lead to certain health problems like cancer. Dental patients don´t need to worry about dental x-rays safety as advancements in dental technology have made its use justifiable.
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.
Can Dental X-Rays radiation be harmful?
The amount of radiation dental patients receive are extremely small. Compared to other medical tests such as mammograms or taking lung x-rays, the doses you get from the dental office are much lower. These amounts can even be comparable (or even lower) to those that we are exposed to in nature. The low doses we get from x-rays are due to the designs of the dental x-ray machine, the x-ray films as well as protective clothes used to limit the exposure.
The frequency of getting dental x-rays is also very low with most patients only needing a full-mouth series of x-rays every couple of years – it all depends on the patient’s risk for gum disease and tooth decay. If your dentist need to take x-rays of your teeth more frequently, this is for monitoring purposes whether it be to check on the status of your teeth’s bone support, the state of your restorations or for any changes that have arose after a certain treatment/s.
Dental x-rays continue in helping dentists improve or maintain the condition of your teeth and gums. If you still have any worry about the amount of radiation exposure you are getting, do not hesitate to ask questions to your dentist so they could clear things for you.
