At Anderson Family Dental, we love hearing from our patients and educating them about their oral health. Below, we have collected some of the questions we hear most often. If your question is not addressed here, or if you would like further details, we would love to hear from you.
ARE DENTAL X-RAYS DANGEROUS?Some patients are concerned about the safety of dental x-rays because of the exposure to radiation it requires. At Anderson Family Dental, we employ a strategy called As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) to minimize the time and amount of your exposure to radiation in any and all imaging procedures. In addition to levels of radiation being very low, the protective vest used in the procedure is a layer of protection for your vital organs against unnecessary exposure. Thus, dental x-rays are considered safe for any age, with proper use of protective coverings.
