We always get this question. “Aren’t X-rays harmful?” or “Does it have any side effects on the brain?”
Well, to answer this question, it is important to know what “natural background radiation” is. This is basically the radiation we receive on a daily basis from the environment.
And the doses from intraoral and full mouth radiographs are lower, less than one day of natural background radiation.
Does that answer the question?
Also, consider the benefits of taking a small X-Ray especially when there is a broken tooth involved. We can:
Monitor the treatment given to see if the filling is in the correct place and the body is accepting the treatment.
Clearly there are more benefits and is a must, especially in cases of traumatic injuries!
