At Pinawa Dental we offer radiography, which offers the lowest radiation of any medical x-rays. A routine exam consists of four x-rays, which is about 0.005 mSv, less radiation than one day of natural background radiation. It is also about the same amount of radiation exposure from a short airplane flight (~1-2 hrs). The Canadian Dental Association recommends that patients who are not having problems have dental x-rays performed annually. Proper shielding is used in the office, which makes the potential risk even lower.

Continued research has led to a decrease in most cancers. However, oral cancer occurrences have been on a steady rise in North America. Note that 25 percent of all oral cancers occur in people who do not smoke and who only drink alcohol occasionally. At Evergreen regular checkups and cleanings help us monitor your overall oral health. We take intra-oral photos and note size and shape of all lesions. Regular checkups and cleanings are best way to catch early signs of cancer.
