Are X-rays safe?

The Singapore Dental Health Foundation states that X-rays are useful diagnostic tools for detecting cavities in
teeth, and checking for bone and gum disorders. Dental X-rays only need a low level of radiation exposure.
To protect the patient, lead apron is used.

For pregnant women X-rays are only taken when needed for treatment.
Note that use of lead apron and will offer protection against radiation exposure.
X-rays can be taken for breastfeeding mothers and women trying to get pregnant.

Note: If an X-ray examination is not done, there is the real risk that disease conditions will not be discovered.
