Do dental x-rays produce a lot of radiation?

Dental x-rays have improved significantly over the years and are now faster, better quality and give a lower radiation dose. To put things in perspective:

  • one dental x-ray would have the equivalent radiation you would receive from half a day outside
  • two dental x-rays has the equivalent radiation found in 100g of brazil nuts
  • a full-mouth x-ray gives the equivalent of two days outside
  • a 3D x-ray would give the equivalent of 12 days outside or the equivalent of
  • flying from New York to Sydney
