Raynor Dental

At Raynor Dental, we are committed to staying at the forefront of dental care, ensuring that our patients receive the safest and most effective treatments available. That’s why we’re sharing the latest update from the American Dental Association (ADA) regarding radiography safety.

Recently, the ADA released new recommendations that signal a significant shift in the approach to X-ray procedures. According to these guidelines, the use of lead abdominal aprons and thyroid collars during dental X-rays is no longer deemed necessary. This recommendation applies to all patients, including those who are pregnant or have thyroid issues.

This change is based on extensive research and evidence demonstrating that modern digital X-ray equipment, combined with precise beam restriction, offers sufficient protection against radiation exposure. By eliminating the use of lead aprons and collars, we can streamline the imaging process, making it more efficient and comfortable for our patients.

We understand that change can sometimes be met with questions or concerns. That’s why we encourage our patients to reach out to us with any inquiries they may have about these new recommendations. Our team is here to provide clarity and support, guiding you through this transition with confidence and reassurance.

As we embrace these advancements in radiography safety, we look forward to continuing to serve our patients with the highest level of care and expertise. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter, healthier future in dentistry.
Thank you for entrusting your oral health to Raynor Dental. We are honored to be your partners in wellness.
