Hi everyone?


I have to get some dental work done and was wondering about the x-rays? Are they completely safe? Should I opt not to have them? Any info would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks!

Totally fine to have x-rays. While dental xrays do not use contrast material, for the record, if you need an x ray at some point that requires a barium swallow, that's also fine.

Have fun at the dentist. I know it sounds strange, but I've always enjoyed my dentist appointments since my children were born ... I am a SAHM now, and the dentist is such a kid free grown up experience.
