What if I'm pregnant and need xrays?

Some types of dental problems require a radiographical (x-ray) examination to properly diagnose and care for a person. If the problem is serious enough, it can’t wait until after the baby is born. In addition, some problems can cause complications for both the mother and the unborn child. If an x-ray is necessary, every precaution will be taken to ensure that the baby is not exposed to radiation using lead shields. However, you can rest easy knowing that with our modern, digital x-ray systems, only half the radiation is used as compared with only a few years ago. Our office is committed to the well-being of all our patients. If you have concerns, please contact us.
