I'm sure you've heard this when you're sitting in the dentist's chair: "Would you like bitewing X-rays?" They likely recommend them every year. They're painless, they don't take much time, and, they won't cost you penny if you're covered by insurance. But do you need them? That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

This episode was adapted from a column Austin Frakt wrote for The Upshot. Links to sources and further reading can be found there: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/26/ups...
