Oral diagnosis is the main science that includes the diagnosis and treatment planning of oral and dental diseases. Radiology plays an important role in diagnosis and treatment planning. Panoramic or periapical radiographs obtained from the patient provide us with all the information we need in the relevant region. The clinical examination is supported by these radiographs, together with a detailed anamnesis of the patient.

New X-ray devices produced with the development of technology now emit less radiation. As a result of the studies, the radiation dose that the human body receives from a dental x-ray is much lower than the radiation dose it receives from an airplane trip.

Panoramic Radiography:X-ray film that can show the patient’s upper and lower teeth, jaw joints, the structure of the jaw bones and the sinuses adjacent to these tissues and their relations with each other.

Periapical Radiography: X-ray film covering a small portion of 2-3 teeth in the jaw. Compared to panoramic radiography, it conveys the structure of the teeth and bone in the relevant region in more detail.
