Is there a risk in using dental X-ray machines for dental treatment?
Many patients in Newheek dental X-ray machine hospitals worry that using dental X-ray machines to treat teeth can cause cancer if they consume too much X-ray. This is a real concern if you don’t understand how Dental X ray machine works.
However, in fact, the dosage of dental X-ray is not very likely to cause disease, and the risk of cancer is even slight. The impact on the reproductive gland and the damage of genetic function is only one in 1 trillion. The amount of X-ray in all 14 oral X-ray photographs can cause malignant tumors. The probability is only 1/4.84 million, and its exposure to the whole body is very small.
According to a study, 14 full-mouth X-rays showed that children were given 33.6 microsieves (3.36 mrem) on an appointment. The average dose of a film was 2.4 microsieves (0.24 mrem). Compared with natural background radiation, it was very small. Dental X-ray machines use fixed exposure methods, so they cover only a small part of the human body (about 16,800 square centimeters) (22.31 square centimeters with a long cylinder collimator). Compared with a wide range of medical fields, the cell tissue involved is extremely limited (0.13%). Compared with normal background radiation, the average dose of radiation we receive from cosmic rays or Earth’s radionuclides is about 200 microsivers, so the dose of dental X-ray examination is very low.
