The American Dental Association states the following: Radiation exposure associated with dentistry represents a minor contribution to the total exposure from all sources, including natural and man-made. This means that dental x-rays are safe.
All x-rays in our office are digital which are 70% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. X-rays will be needed at most exams for our dentist to evaluate your child’s oral health. (Bone & tooth structure under the gums)
