Is the use of X-rays on the teeth to cause cancer?

The dose of X-rays used for dental diagnosis is not highly likely to cause disease, and the probability of cancer is even minimal. The impact on the gonads and the destruction of genetic function is only one in 1 trillion. The probability of the radiation from all 14 intraoral X-ray films causing malignant tumors is only one in 4.84 million, and its exposure to the whole body is also very small. According to a research report, when a childs 14 full-mouth X-rays were taken, a dose of 33.6 microsieverts (3.36mrem) was absorbed on a date, and an average film was 2.4 microsieverts (0.24mrem), and natural background Compared to radiation, its amount is very small. The dental X-ray machine uses a fixed exposure method, so the covered tissue only accounts for a small part of the human body (about 16800cm2) (22.31cm2 when using a long cylindrical collimator). Compared with the wider medical field, it involves The cell organization is extremely limited (0.13%). Compared with normal background radiation, the average radiation dose we receive from cosmic rays or terrestrial nuclei is about 200 microsieverts, so the dose of dental X-ray examination is very low.
