Intraoral Radiography in Pediatric Dental Practice

  • Johan Aps


Intraoral radiography means that the image detector is placed inside the patient’s mouth and the X-ray machine positioned extraorally, aiming at the image detector. Because the image detector is placed close to the teeth, the detail in the image should be optimal and the distortion minimal. There are three ways of obtaining intraoral radiographs: parallel technique, bisecting angle technique, and occlusal technique.
