Depends on need: A full mouth series will vary from provider to provider and even city to city. Commonly i belive you could count on a true full mouth series to cost $100-$200 depending on what is including such as a panoramic radiograph which will push it into the higher amounts.

What complications are associated with dental x-rays?

Not many: There are very few complications with dental x-rays. The amount of radiation a patient receives from a full set of dental x-rays (usually 20-24 individual tooth x-rays) is much less than that person receives from normal sunshine in one day.

Radiation exposure: Digital radiographs expose the patient to a significantly lesser amount of radiation. Due to the very small amount of exposure with any dental radiograph, damaged to your body from the dental x-ray is extremely rare. Digital radiographs can also be processed faster to facilitate treatment.
