Are Dental X-Rays Safe?

At Today’s Dental Comfort, we believe that regular dental visits are essential to the longevity of your oral health. Your oral health is our main concern and we want to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and function properly. When you visit our office for your hygiene examination and cleaning one component of the exam is dental X-rays. Dental X-rays are images of your teeth used to determine the levels of decay in the teeth, if decay is present between the teeth, and to assist during the process of placing dental implants and other needed procedures. Children also receive dental X-rays that are useful in identifying not only tooth decay, but to determine if there is enough room for the adult teeth to emerge. X-rays also help identify if wisdom teeth are present and if they are impacted.
