If a picture is worth a thousand words, what words would be used to describe your radiographs?
We all know the importance of having good clarity, open contacts or making sure that the apex is clearly visible in order to have a clear picture of our patient’s restorative needs. What about bone level visibility? Are you able to have a good assessment of your patient’s periodontal classification before picking up the probe? Do you feel confident that if you refer your patient to the periodontist that he/she would be able to diagnose off of the images you send?
Watch the video below to see one of the best things I do routinely to be able to see all of the bone levels bitewing after bitewing.
