Along the lines of the dental thread by Sooz

last year

Last week I went for a cleaning. I go twice a year. This visit they wanted to take x-rays.

It has been a year and a half since my last ones. I declined.

The hygienist asked why and then went o to say how it is very low dosage from the x-ray, yada, yada, yada.

I have two teeth that we are "watching." One for twenty years! The other is a tooth with a cap. Certainly not an emerge3ncy situation.

My question here is, for those who don't have ongoing issues, how often do you get x-rays?

As was suggested by Elmer in the other post, the dentist "leads" you to "believe" you should do something.

I decided I did not want to pay for x-rays this visit, and also for my spring visit.
