In brief: None
With digital xrays there is 90% less radiation used and with lead apron withthyroid colar, there really is no risk versus the benifits of dental xrays.

Not really sure what you are asking.
With digital xrays used today, radiation levels are very low. Trauma in the mouth is really the only adverse effect as sometimes the sensors or film might bruise the soft tissue.

In brief: 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.

In brief: Little
Even conventional dental x- rays emit little radiation.
It is the c t scans that emit much larger amounts.

Agree but more radiation doesn't always mean bad 4 u: often benefit of good CT scan over conventional X-ray out weighs risk of add'l rad'n.
