The advanced x-ray machines product less level of radiation, which means they’re safe. Our team of experts take necessary precautions to limit your exposure to the radiation during the x-ray procedure.
Some of the preventive measures we take to reduce the level of radiation consumption during x-ray include using lead apron shields to protect the body and the use of sensors. The preventive measures taken during dental x-rays help cuts down the exposure time of each x-ray.
