      Could anyone who has had an xray for teeth let me know please if it affected their T? I have to have an 'all round' x ray and I'm scared!

      I didn't have dental extras but I did have upper body spine xray and it did not affect my T

      Thanks Erik - did the x ray go anywhere near your head? I'm dreading it! Jane

      Jane --- I've had dental X-rays recently, and I don't remember it being any problem, tinnitus-wise. I think you'll be OK!

      Thanks so much Karen - it really helps to know someone has had them and their T stayed the same.

      I've had a digital x-ray last year for dental work and didn't notice anything. Nor did I notice an increase when I had a conventional X-ray many years ago either.
