Discussion and Refusal of Dental Radiographs

At BHDG we care deeply about your oral health and its connection to your overall well being. We understand and respect your decision not to have your radiographs today. We want to ensure that you are aware of the risks of delaying radiographs and would like to educate you as to why they are important. Radiographs can help the dental practitioner evaluate and definitively diagnose many oral diseases and conditions. Often, a radiograph is necessary to identify problems that are asymptomatic or undetectable clinically. Radiographs help locate possible decay, infection, and cysts. They also help to evaluate root structure, check the health of the bone, diagnose periodontal disease, and check the status of developing teeth in the case of a pediatric patient. I understand that by not having the recommended radiographs, conditions may currently exist that will be undiagnosed, and/or may arise at any time in the future that could have been prevented, detected earlier. I have had an opportunity to ask questions about dental radiographs and the risks involved with not taking them.
