RADIATION FROM DENTAL X-RAYS
Many people are wary about having dental X-rays taken. Fears of radiation exposure are founded on dangers of radiation to other health areas. Thankfully, digital X-ray equipment exposes patients to 80% less radiation than standard X-rays. At Korte Family Dentistry, we go above and beyond to limit radiation exposure through the advanced dental X-ray equipment we use and other precautions we practice.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DENTAL X-RAYS
Dental X-rays are a vital component of the dentist’s diagnosis and treatment decisions. With dental X-rays, the dentist can see when there is an infection, bone loss, or other issues. Without the use of dental X-rays, the dentist would be confined to whatever information he/she can gather from a visual inspection of the mouth.
