Current practice in conventional and digital intraoral radiography: problems and solutions

Fuhrmann AW

In summary, it can be said for digital radiography that digital exposures can be taken just as well as dental film exposures. The problems found when using holders for the paralleling technique are similar in conventional and digital radiography. Good intraoral x-ray images can be produced as a rule with practice, good will and a skilful hand. The bisected angle technique should no longer be used, as this no longer corresponds to the state of the art and of dental medicine. It is therefore important that all intraoral dental exposures are taken with corresponding holders and the paralleling technique. Thus, the bite wing and measuring exposures are no longer taken with the finger or other aids, but suitable holders are used. However, being able to place the film, the storage phosphor or the sensor in the oral cavity correctly is just as important as the choice of exposure technique. Theoretical knowledge and practical skill are therefore closely related.
