Are X-Rays Safe?

Our Digital x-rays produce a significantly lower level of radiation compared to traditional dental x-rays. Digital x-rays are not only better for the patien'ts health and safety, they are quicker which reduces time in the dental office. Digital X-rays are also more environmentally friendly since the digital image is captured electronically and there is no need to develop the x-rays using environmentally harmful chemicals.

Everyone is exposed to natural background radiation in the environment, however although digital x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered very safe, dentists still take necessary precautions to limit the patient’s exposure to any radiation from the X-ray. We only take X-Rays that are necessary and do so while using and using lead apron shielding to protect the body.

Fluoride Supplements & Sealants

Fluoride is a mineral that helps to strengthen teeth to prevent cavities and reverse or remineralize small cavities affecting the outer enamel layer of the tooth.

 

Patients who are at risk for cavities most likely need fluoride supplement therapy along with good nutrition and dental home care to help control tooth decay.

 

Sealants are especially recommended for the adult first and second molars, for children around 6 years and 12 years of age respectively.


At My Fairfax Dental, we have Fluoride treatments for children and recommend this during their regular dental cleanings.

Dental Screenings

Regular dental exams along with modern low radiation digital dental Xrays are crucial in helping to identify any soft and hard tissue abnormalities of the oral cavity and surrounding structures of the head and neck area.
It can also show:

  • Abnormal Development or poor positioning of either tooth and roots.
  • Moderate to Severe bone loss,
  • Tooth Decay,

X-Rays also allow the Dentist to see problems that occur below the gum line or inside the tooth itself.

 

Early detection of dental problems are crucial to preventing more expensive treatment later on and unncessary pain and discomfort.
