Intraoral Radiography: Principles, Techniques and Error Correction



Properly prescribed intraoral radiographs are an important component of patient diagnosis and treatment. Radiographs are especially helpful in the diagnosis of dental caries, periodontal bone loss, periapical pathosis, and for other observations that may impact patient treatment. It is imperative that dental professionals are competent in taking intraoral radiographs to ensure diagnostically acceptable images, while keeping the amount of radiation exposure to patients at a minimum.
