Importance of Dental X-rays
- Dental x-rays are images of your teeth that the dentist uses to evaluate your oral health. These types of x-rays use a very low level of radiation to capture images of teeth and gums.
- Dental x-rays help the dentist identify and accurately diagnose problems like cavities, impacted teeth, and infections.
- The exposed radiation levels are so low it is considered safe for children and adults. In fact, exposure to radiation from digital dental x-rays is much less than radiation exposure from cell phones, microwaves, computers and simply going outside in the sun.
