Digital x-rays, reduced radiation
X-rays are a vital tool for the doctor to diagnosis the condition of your mouth. These images are used to evaluate the health of your mouth which includes possible cavities, bone level, and any anamolies.
At Health Centered Dentistry, we do our best to ensure your exposure to radiation is limited by using a lead apron with a thyroid collar. We also limit the number of x-rays we take dependent on the health of the patient.
We recognize that exposure to radiation is a great concern for patients and we want to ensure our patients that their concerns are heard. You can speak with your doctor prior to discuss your specific medical history and concerns prior to treatment.
We also strongly recommend reviewing this insightful infograph which shows the varying levels of radiation according to activity and/or treatment.
