Beware of Radiophobia!

In contrary to popular belief, you don't have to risk your health for a radiograph (X-ray). Hence, fear not if we prescribe you to go through a dental X-ray for proper identification of your illness.

"Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may be fearless."

Beware! Your body gets radiations every second:

This may be surprising to some of us to hear that our body gets exposed to natural radiation every time from :

1. Cosmic rays (the source is sun and stars)

2. Terrestrial radiation (source is uranium, thorium, decay products of air, water and soil)

3. Traces of radiation from food and from our own host body.

Researches have shown that the background natural radiations which a person gets exposed is about 2.4mSv/year to 260mSv/year. (Depending upon their location).

But a single dental X-ray gives out radiation dose of 0.09mS which is similar to that of amount of radiation you're naturally exposed to from the environment over 10 days.

So now, are you still fearing about our X-ray machines..? Are you still thinking that X-rays are like hazardous?

Are you concerned even about those minor X-ray radiation, never hesitate to ask us for our radiation protective lead aprons.

Our AERB approved X-ray equipment with excellent ratings in safety:
