Tupelo Dentist- Dr. John Kenney's "Your Dental Health"- X-Rays
http://www.tupelosmiles.com/ http://tupelodentist.com Could dental x-rays be bad for your health? A study published in Cancer, a scientific journal of the American Cancer Society, associates yearly or more frequent dental x rays with an increased risk of developing meningioma, the most commonly diagnosed brain tumor. This type of tumor is usually not malignant. The study has received widespread media coverage, and a number of the stories cite the ADA's dental x ray recommendations that help dentists determine how to keep radiation exposure as low as reasonably achievable.
