It's important to take x-rays to assess your condition and treat it. Different cases require different x-rays. Your description does not sound out of the ordinary and I wouldn't worry. Also, most dental x-rays expose you to LESS radiation than you would get during a normal day. (Think the radiation from living one day longer).
