Do I need to worry about dental x-rays contributing to thyroid cancer?

Are you worried about radiation exposure from Dental X-rays?

Fear no more! Dr. Dave’s practice provides you with a worry free solution.

X-rays are vital to your dentist helping you maintain your oral health. A visual exam can only show about 25% of your oral tissues!  However, due to the use of X-rays in the procedure, you are exposed to small amounts of radiation. In years past, x-ray procedures have used bitewing radiographs to capture images of the harder to see areas of your mouth. They used actual film that needed to get developed like any picture. While they were very effective, technology has advanced well beyond that with the advent of Digital Radiography!
