Digital X-Rays

All treatments available in every 'Instore Dental' practice.

Q: Why might an X-Ray be necessary as part of a dental appointment?

A: Dentists can tell a lot about the condition of your teeth just by looking inside your mouth, but sometimes they need to look a bit deeper. X-rays are a vital tool for dentists as they can often spot problems before you start to feel any pain or discomfort. They can also be used for something as simple as finding out whether or not you need a filling.

Q: I would like to avoid an X-Ray if possible due to the health risks associated with them. What is your advice on this?

A: Because only a small amount of radiation is used for dental x-rays, there is only a very slight risk. If you are pregnant, though, you must tell your dentist before you have an x-ray as it might harm your unborn child.

Q: What extent of radiation is involved in an X-Ray?

A: Radiation is around us all the time (background radiation). Two bitewing (side) X-Rays would be the equivalent of eight hours exposed to ordinary background radiation, or the same amount of radiation from a return flight to Spain.
