In brief: Even one adds up!
Dental x-rays have been shown to more than double the risk of certain brain tumors! there is no "safe" dose of radiation, as even a small dose can create problems, but the risks rise with higher doses.
The risk from a single x-ray is small but children should not get dental x-rays in most cases.Only have x-rays if essential. See http://www.Naturalnews.Com/035625_x-rays_brain_tumors_dentistry.Html.

In brief: Wrong question.
All x-rays added together have cumulative toxicity, long-term carcinogenicity.
Avoid unecessary x-rays whenever possible. Drs. And dentists with there personal machines look at these devices as a way to print money.
