There is very little risk in dental X-rays. Pediatric dentists are especially careful to limit the amount of radiation to which children are exposed. Lead aprons and high-speed film are used to ensure safety and minimize your child’s exposure. You actually receive more radiation walking to your car on a sunny day than from a dental x-ray. There is far higher risk in undetected and undiagnosed dental disease and cavities than taking x-rays every 6-12 months.
