I get tired of being scolded every time I go there by the hygienists. Also, I was wearing my Fitbit when I had an x-ray. I wasn't warned to remove it, and later in the day, I realized it wasn't working. I guess I should have known better, but just didn't think about it at the time. As those are expensive, a sign or a heads up would have been greatly appreciated.
Our hygienists do not scold. The inform and educate our patients on problem areas that they come across so future more involved issues do not occur. The issue of your fitbit. The panoramic x-ray machine produces less radiation than your being outside in the sun. It is only necessary for patients to remove any metal objects around their head and neck area.
