Dental x-rays are a safe and important part of regular dental appointments. They help our dental team screen for potential problems that may otherwise remain undetected until they become more painful, serious, and expensive.
We understand that some people are worried about the impact of dental x-rays on their health. We want to reassure you that dental x-rays are completely safe. The amount of radiation you receive during routine x-rays is much less than the amount you receive from other natural sources.
The average Canadian is exposed to radiation from the air, ground, food, natural materials, outer space, and even from other people.
According to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commissions, you’d need to have well over 300 full-mouth series of x-rays in one year to be at any risk. Don’t let fear prevent you from getting the best possible dental care.
