Dental X-rays are very safe. With new technologies, Digital X-rays and proper radiation protection equipment, radiation exposure is much less. Dental X-rays are very small - so much less exposure than medical X-rays.
Your dental professional will see the frequency needed for your specific conditions. In my office, we have full-mouth X-rays every 3 years and smaller Bitewing X-rays every year.
You would be surprised how many cavities you would see on X-rays which you/your dentist could have never seen without X-rays. It will save you lots of time, money, and effort in the long run.

Best wishes!!
