Just got back from routine check-up/cleaning for 8 yo dd. Last year I allowed x-rays as she had a pretty big cavity and I thought it might enable the best tx of that. This year I didn't allow x-rays. They laid the pressure on rather thick. All about how it's all digitized now and much lower dose than used to be (which was of course at the time said to be completely safe).
Somewhere along the way I read an article about how routine dental x-rays had been found to be more hazardous than they'd previously been thought to be (oh, really? what a surprise). I don't know where I saw the article. Anybody have any good, well-researched links about this?
