Some Important Information About X-rays

Dr. Jordan Pettigrew

Did you know it would take approximately 10000 dental x-rays to reach your annual maximum dose of radiation?

– Each time you fly from coast to coast you receive 4 millirems of backround radiation…..the equivalent of four panoramic x-rays.

– There is backround radiation from things like concrete buildings, roads and even the sun…just standing around you receive more than 3 bitewing x-rays worth of radiation every day.
