Maybe you knew this already; maybe you didn’t. Of course, there’s a good reason why some folks dread having an X Ray. Rumor has it that they could be contaminated with radiation. But please, folks, you need to remember this going forward. You’re not being exposed to a nuclear power plant. And just think, you’re practically being exposed to radiation every single day of your lives through the use of your everyday use appliances; from mobile phones to big-screen TVs.
From desktop computers to even the dashboard deck in your SUV. The exposure to the dental x ray in Denton is minuscule in comparison. And in any case, the qualified dentist would not dare put your body at risk. It is standard procedure to prepare the patient well beforehand. The initial non-invasive diagnosis and consultation confirms whether or not the patient is in a generally good state of health or not to receive the X ray.
And the chances are rather slim that you would be taking in an X ray more than is really necessary. The standard dental exam, one that you would normally be exposed to at least twice a year would not normally require an X ray. But if you are an entirely new patient with no previous records to show, you might have to sit through an X ray. And these days, there could be an even better alternative in the form of a digital impression.
And that latter exposure carries no radiation risk whatsoever. It is only those whose health is vulnerable at this time that will not be exposed to a dental X ray. Folks, the risk is well and truly minimal, so you have nothing to fear whatsoever.
