The media is covering a study that links dental radiographs (X-rays) to brain cancer. Dental care professionals are highly educated on the proper use of dental radiographs. Unlike some other parts of the body, most parts of the teeth are not visible. The problem is often inside the tooth, between teeth and/or under the gum tissue. Dental radiographs are required to show the areas of the teeth and jaw bones that are not visible to the eye. Dental radiographs are an essential part of dental diagnosis and treatment. We can’t treat what we can’t see!
I have attached information from the American Dental Association’s website.
