Do taking x rays compromise other parts of the body?

No, it is not. 

It is extremely safe to taking x rays when performed properly. 

It may actually be more dangerous not to take x rays in the long run because cavities that are between teeth are nearly impossible to detect without the x ray images. Patient may end up needing larger treatments such as root canal treatment or even extraction because cavities were not found when they were small. 

We provide shield to cover your chest and your neck when taking x rays. 

If you had a radiation therapy due to cancer, it is advised to perhaps skip the x rays for another visit to avoid overdose of radiation.
