Intraoral Survey Organization

The American Dental Association’s (ADA) standard for viewing and interpreting intraoral radiographic images is labial mounting or arrangement. This orientation presents the survey as if the clinician is facing the patient’s oral cavity with the views arranged and organized anatomically according to the patient’s right and left sides. This standard applies regardless of the type of receptor (rigid sensor, phosphor plate, film) used to capture the radiographic image(s).
