As a parent-to-be, it’s very understandable to worry about how X-Ray radiation will affect your pregnancy. Luckily, X-Rays used in dental diagnostics is extremely safe. The American College of Radiology has stated that the low level of radiation in single-use diagnostics will not cause harm to the pregnancy nor the baby. In fact, the level of radiation is only equivalent to 1/8 of a flight from New York to Los Angeles, or half of the radiation you are exposed to naturally throughout the day. A small dental X Ray has radiation equivalent to that of two bananas. If you still hold concerns, we are able to provide lead aprons for extra protection.
