Are dental x-rays safe?

Dr. Bussell can identify a number of oral conditions during your comprehensive dental exam. Because enamel is covering each tooth, he cannot always detect what is happening beneath the surface. A dental x-ray will reveal more than is visible to the naked eye alone.

Without dental x-rays, a small cavity can spread under the enamel, deteriorating the interior of your tooth and even affecting the nerve. By monitoring your health routinely with x-rays, we can stop this progression. Since we use digital dental x-rays, our patients are receiving the safest and most accurate x-rays available today.

Digital x-rays work very much like a digital camera, delivering a high-resolution image immediately to the treatment room monitor for Dr. Bussell to review and to assist him in diagnosis.

Because they emit up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays, digital dental x-rays are one of the safest medical x-rays used today. You will absorb more radiation by being outside on a sunny afternoon.

We recommend dental x-rays based on the needs of our patients. We will typically take bitewings on a yearly basis and a full-mouth series every 3-5 years, depending on your dental history.
