Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

The radiation exposure from dental x-rays is much less than the exposure you would get from a chest x-rays taken by your physician. In fact, you will absorb more radiation by spending a day out in the summer sun. Dental radiographs or x-rays expose the patient to very small amounts of radiation. Plus, new digital x-ray technology can cut that amount down by close to 90% over traditional film x-rays. We use these images to detect decay, tumors, cysts or other abnormalities not evident to the naked eye. They are a critical part of a complete dental examination.
