Let’s clear out the bad first. And then let’s just settle in to all that could or should be good about the dental x ray in Colorado Springs. Okay, so the bad then. And please note that this is being said as informationally and objectively as possible, so there is seriously nothing to be concerned about. So, yes, it is quite true that the patient could be exposed to radiation when receiving an X Ray. And it is at this point that the informational article can kick straight into the good.
Being exposed to radiation is hardly avoidable these days, unless you choose to live in the back of beyond. Look around you and we dare you to find a single appliance that does not omit a particle of radiation. And yet, after all this time, you are still well and healthy, not so. No harm has been done to your body and mind. And dentists at large will never be exposing vulnerable patients to the potential harm that radiation could do.
This would have been the case for patients with underlying conditions wide of the dental procedures, as well as those who are expecting. The dental X Ray has advantages for the patient. Once the X Ray is taken, the dentist almost has a bird’s eye view of what is going on inside of the patient’s mouth. But also note that the model patient is not normally exposed to the X Ray, not as much as would have been the case for a new patient or a patient with severely impaired dental and oral health.
The model patient is already seeing the dentist at least twice a year. The dentist already has a clear impression of the patient’s dental and oral health.
