How Should You Prepare for a Dental X-Ray Session?

If you have an upcoming dental appointment that requires x-rays, will you need to take any special preparatory steps in advance? The good news is that there is very little required of the patient. Some points to keep in mind include:

  • Always brush your teeth before the visit.
  • Inform the dentist if you suspect that you might be pregnant — as x-rays are not safe for pregnant women.
  • The dental hygienist will lead you through the additional steps.

“At the dentist’s office, you’ll sit in a chair with a lead vest across your chest and lap.”
