The goal of dental radiology is to obtain high-quality images while minimizing radiation exposure and keeping every patient as comfortable as possible. Consider how these tips may assist in challenging situations.

  • Know what to choose based on anatomical challenge.
  • The paralleling technique using aiming devices is recommended for fewer errors and retakes.
  • The bisecting angle technique using media holders are recommended for patients with anatomical challenges, and during endodontic and implant procedures.
  • Use the largest sensor possible to obtain maximum information.
  • Have a protocol in place for when to switch to a smaller sensor.
  • Place in the center of the mouth for the paralleling technique.
  • Use cotton rolls, especially in vertical positions and edentulous areas.
  • Place the sensor parallel to the teeth.
  • Use the indicator slot to align with interproximal spaces on bitewings.
  • Align the central beam through the contact areas.
  • Adjust vertical angulation on bitewings to capture adequate bone levels.
  • With premolar bitewings, to capture the distal of the canine, adjust the media approximately 15 degress distomesial.
