Sometimes as part of your dental visit, you may be exposed to radiation, especially when you receive digital X-rays during your normal six-month dental exams. When radiation through X-rays is not monitored and controlled, it may be harmful and put unhealthy stress on the unprotected areas of your body, including the soft tissues of your mouth. Our dental professionals are committed to your oral and physical wellbeing. Because of this, Midtown Dental offers an oral radiation protection device to help ensure your health and safety.
Dr. Josh Erekson and Dr. David Sterzer offer a custom oral radiation protection device for patients who may need extensive radiation-intense treatments like chemotherapy. We know that many harmful oral conditions come from soft tissues being exposed to radiation, and so we take every precaution to safeguard your oral health. Our oral appliance separates the mouth from surplus exposure during treatment, which prevents potential damage by forming a wall between the sensitive parts of your body and the dangerous radiation particles. If you would like to know more information about oral radiation protection devices in Billings, Montana, or if you would like to schedule an appointment with our trained dentists, you are welcome to give us a call at 406-625-3000 today.
