Why do the x-ray films hurt sometimes?

This is a common question from dental patients which is quite simple to explain. The x-ray beam will penetrate through all objects in its path except metal. Therefore, in order to take a picture of your teeth and not your head, or the head rest behind you there needs to be a lead barrier in the film packet. In addition, the film must not be bent in your mouth so as to not distort the picture we are trying to capture. So although the mouth is a delicate area, the films must be made fairly firm.
