At Southside Family Dental we use digital x-rays to get a clear image of what is happening in your mouth. The x-rays help to provide your dentist with information on dental issues that they may not always be able to see in an examination.
- Many people do worry about the radiation exposure during dental x-rays, although this is not an issue. Modern technology and techniques mean that you are exposed to minimal amounts of radiation, in fact, less radiation exposure than a domestic flight.
- X-rays are taken as a precautionary measure at Southside Family Dental to provide us with as much information about your oral health as possible before starting any treatment plans.
- If our x-ray does not provide enough information to develop a treatment plan for you, we may give you a referral for a more comprehensive x-ray at one of the local imaging and x-ray centres.
