With X-Rays used frequently, our dental professional customers find themselves looking for the best equipment to protect patients. One of the most important pieces of equipment we supply are Dental Radiation Lead Aprons.

Lead Dental Aprons Why Do You Need Them

You might ask what a lead apron is and why it is so important for dental professionals. Well, a lead apron is a piece of medical protective clothing used to protect wearers from radiation exposure. The apron has a rubber and cloth material on the outside with a lead interior. AttenuTech’ s lead dental aprons are protective and comfortable. They offer 0.375mm Pb lead equivalency protection, high quality protection against radiation for both children and adults. They are also extremely comfortable and offer chest, shoulder, neck, and thyroid protection for both men and women.

Additionally, while wearing a lead dental apron for protection during dental X-rays, they are worn just like a regular apron, they attach at the back and protect all internal organs that may be affected by the radiation. These organs may become exposed to radiation if protective gear were not worn. However, the way a lead apron works is by acting as a barrier to block radiation particles before they are able to reach and affect your body’s cells. The interesting thing about radiation aprons is that they are able to provide this protection while not forfeiting the quality of the X-ray. Dentists and orthodontists perform x-rays on the mouth area. However, it is still possible for radiation exposure to occur in parts lower on the body. That is why a lead apron is important during dental X-rays.

Because of how harmful it is for children to wear dental aprons during x-rays, AttenuTech is proud to offer a great line of colors and patterns to choose from. These help to promote relaxation and comfort for adults and children alike during the X-ray process. Without a lead apron, the body is at serious risk of exposure from radiation.  The harmful effects of this exposure are predominantly long term effects such as DNA changes. Radiation from X-rays can also cause nausea, headaches and fatigue.

All in all, we are proud to offer our extensive line of carefully manufactured radiation dental aprons for men, women, and children. Check out the line here!
