Many people often wonder if x-rays are safe because of the radiation they entail. Dental x-rays are safe because of the low levels of radiation that is used to take the image. We also use lead aprons as an extra layer of protection for our patients while the x-ray is taken.
Another reason you don’t need to worry about x-rays causing radiation problems is because we only recommend you get them every 6 to 18 months. This is not enough to cause you any harm!

When Should I Get My First Dental X-Rays?
Dental experts suggest that children receive their first dental x-rays once your child starts growing in their permanent teeth. This will help the dentist provide your child with the best care because x-rays provide an enlarged image of the teeth.
We recommend you get dental x-rays every 6 to 18 months depending on your health and age. Ask a member of our Platinum Dental Providence team how often you should get them.
