"How dangerous are dental x-rays?"

Q: I worry about getting dental x-rays. Just how dangerous are they?

A: Some people are concerned about radiation when they get dental x-rays, but there’s really no need to worry. Believe it or not, just by being outdoors for an hour your body is absorbing more radiation than you are when you get a full set of dental x-rays. And digital x-rays are even less radioactive!

If you’re nervous about dental x-rays, talk to your dentist about it. You’re actually in more danger by not getting dental x-rays… If you don’t get x-rays, your dentist may miss something important.
