Radiographs

Dental "x-rays" that allow for careful diagnosis of the tooth roots, the pulp, the bone surrounding the teeth, and to diagnose cavities in areas that can't be seen inside the mouth with direct vision. The dosage of radiation is quite small compared to other types of radiographs. It would take over five hundred dental radiographs to equal the exposure recieved in one chest x-ray. A full mouth series of radiographs is about the same exposure recieved from four hours of sunshine. A panoramic radiograph is about the same exposure as only three of the small dental radiographs. Finally, the newer digital radiographs use a radiation exposure of about 10% that of conventional dental radiographs!
