Are Dental X Rays Safe During Pregnancy?
Posted on 2/7/2022 by Dr. Michael Allard
Proper dental hygiene practices are necessary if you want to have optimal oral health. Coming to the dentist's office is an important practice that will help you avoid common dental problems. Even when you are pregnant, you should maintain regular dental visits, which will assist you in maintaining overall wellbeing. Our dentists will help you avoid common dental problems while expectant. You will therefore focus on the healthy development of your unborn child. When you come for a dental checkup, our dentist can use dental X-rays to better understand the state of your dental health.
Dental X rays are safe even during pregnancy
The modern techniques of obtaining dental X-rays use very low levels of radiation, meaning that you will be at no risk of harmful exposure. We make sure to follow standard protocol procedures which ensures that a patient does not get radiation exposure that is more than necessary. Therefore, you can be rest assured the process will be safe, and no harm will occur to you or your child.
Why are dental X rays crucial
Dental X-rays are important because they help the dentist to identify underlying dental health problems that may be impeding your overall wellbeing. Some dental problems are not easily seen, and a dental X-ray helps in their identification. With the images, our dentists can personalize your care plan for effective treatment.
