How Safe are Dental X-Rays?

Over the years there have been many advances in dentistry have helped to the lower the amount of radiation that is emitted by today's X-rays.

Some of the improvements are:

1. New digital X-ray machines that limit the radiation beam

2. Higher speed X-ray films that require shorter exposure time compared

3. The use of film holders that keep the film in place in the mouth

It is important to keep in mind that not all dental offices have the same equipment. As a consumer, you should always check with the latest information available on dental equipment or ask your dentist what types of equipment they use.
