Dental X-rays
digital xrays at Preferred Dental Care Center in Beaverton, OR To x-ray or not to x-ray; that is the question! Whether 'tis nobler in the dental office...

Did you know background or 'naturally-occurring' radiation is all around us? We are exposed to it all the time and natural exposure varies where we live.

Some things to consider:
•  A coast-to-coast plane flight exposes a person to background radiation equivalent to getting eighty (80) dental x-rays!
•  A person would have to receive twenty thousand (20,000) dental x-rays to equal the radiation exposure of just one mammogram!
•  Standing outside in the sun for several minutes is like getting three (3) x-rays worth of radiation a day!
•  Typically, dental patients receive a total of six (6) x-rays per year and a full series of x-rays (18 films) every five years.
•  So again, to x-ray or not to x-ray? Just think about the serious consequences of cavities, gum disease, abcesses, bone loss and oral cancer that could go undetected without an x-ray!

The benefits greatly outweigh the risks. There is no question that a low dose dental x-ray is safe, effective and potentially life saving!
