Are dental x-rays safe?
Digital x-rays are one of the most important new advances that our profession has seen in quite some time.
Dr. Katie will determine what your x-ray schedule should be based on a review of your caries risk assessment (cavity risk), your dental history, as well as your current state of oral health.
Dental x-rays emit very small amounts of radiation while images are taken, but as always, our highly trained team takes the appropriate measures to ensure you and your family are safe! Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage can save time, money, and often, unnecessary discomfort.
X-rays also helps Dr. Katie see decay in between your teeth. A tricky area we can't see with the naked eye. It is important to know that dental x-ray equipment is examined and inspected by the State of Texas on a yearly basis for safety. We are always here to answer any questions you might have.
