Dental x-rays are an essential part of holistic dental treatment. Many
diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen when your
dentist examines your mouth without X-rays.
Traditional dental x-rays (film based) expose patients to less radiation
than those of chest or internal organs. However, digital dental x-rays
are significantly better and expose 80% less than traditional dental x-rays!
To put in context, a panoramic digital dental x-ray or 2 bitewing digital
dental x ray expose the patient to same amount of radiation as they experience
in one day from natural environment.
