dental x-rays for assessment in dentistry

Information on dental x-ray types and why they are required for careful and thorough assessment in dentistry. Digital x-rays allow for much less radiation.

 

DENTAL X-RAYS

dental x-rays
 

Exposure to all sources of radiation -- including the sun, minerals in the soil, appliances in your home and  s-rays -- may damage the tissues and cells in the body which could lead to the development of cancer. The dose of radiation you are exposed to during the taking of x-rays is extremely small, with very low radiation levels in dentistry. Digital and scanning x-ray machines limit the radiation beam to a very small area.  Lead-lined aprons protect the body.

Radiation Health Queensland provide possession and use licenses each year to our practice with a  requirement that x-ray machines are checked and certified for accuracy and safety with a radiation physicist.
