How often do I need dental x-rays?

The number of x-rays required should be kept to the minimum only enough to obtain a diagnosis. It depends on the patient's present oral health, age, risk for disease and any signs or symptoms of oral disease.

Dr. Günay will review your history, examine your mouth then discuss with you her recommendations for x-rays.

In our office appropriate shielding with lead aprons are used when exposing patients to radiation.
All x-ray equipment and accessories conform to the federal requirements of the Radiation Emitting Devices Act and the Food and Drug act.
