“To see is to know”
“To not see is to guess”
Radiographs (x-rays) are the cornerstone of modern preventive dentistry. They allow us to see underneath fillings, beneath the gum, through the bone and even inside the teeth. Conditions which may be visible on an x-ray include cysts, tumors, abscesses, impacted teeth, root tips, gum and bone disease, and decay between the teeth. Even though you do not have any pain does not mean that these conditions do not exist. Early detection of problems through use of x-rays leads to early treatment which prevents unnecessary loss of teeth.
Modern digital x-ray machines with lead shielding and the use of ultra-fast speed film provide for great reduction in the amount of radiation received by the patient, while maintaining the professional value.
I have been fully informed on the advisability of having selected dental x-rays and that without them my current total dental health cannot be assessed.
I am absolving Dr. Jason Knag, DDS, Dr. Beverly Moon, DMD and staff of any responsibility from conditions that may arise and go undetected as a result of my refusal of dental s-rays. I am accepting full responsibility for my own dental health
