How many x-rays are necessary to find hidden disease? Should dental x-rays be taken every visit or should they only be taken when pain or symptoms arise? Patients are often concerned with too much exposure to x-ray radiation; however, when it comes to dental health, it is often not possible to detect dental disease without the aid of x-rays. With the advancements of new and faster x-ray films, better x-ray machines, and the use of lead aprons, dental x-rays have become very safe.
