Why Does My Dentist Give Me So Many X-Rays? (https://goo.gl/gZxw3J)

Your dentist should tailor your x-ray schedule to your personal needs. Depending on your dental situation, you may need them more or less frequently than some patients.

A comprehensive set of x-rays is typically taken at your first appointment to establish a baseline for your dental care with your new dentist, but after that, they should really be scheduled depending on your personal oral care needs.

While dental X-rays account for less than 3 percent of all the radiation that Americans get through medical imaging, every effort should be made to minimize their use.
