Digital X-rays

Afraid of too much radiation from dental x-rays?

Dr’s Wheelock, Bursick, and Giese use digital x-rays in their office and have for years.  Did you know that a single digital intraoral image has a 109%  less dose of radiation than a mammogram and 29% less than a chest x-ray?  You get 5% more radiation on a 5 hour airplane flight than you do with a single digital x-ray. Next time your hygienist says open up for a picture,  just smile and know you are in good hands due to up-to-date technology.
