Slide3 l.jpg

Approach radiographic interpretation as you do all other aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive


Normal vs abnormal l.jpg
NORMAL VS. ABNORMAL aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Anatomy (hard tissue, soft tissue)

  • Variants (torus, root shape)

  • Pathology ( decay, bone loss, disease)


Set yourself up for success l.jpg

Set Yourself Up for Success aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

View radiographs in a darkened area with a lighted viewbox


Periapical radiographs l.jpg

Periapical Radiographs aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

Full Mouth Series


Develop a routine for intrepretation l.jpg
Develop a routine for intrepretation aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive


My routine l.jpg
My Routine aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Start above the apices of the teeth on the upper right

  • Proceed around the arch to the left, bottom left, and bottom right

  • Look for normal or abnormal anatomy


Routine continued l.jpg
Routine continued aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Examine the bone, root formation, and all structures supporting the teeth

  • Again, look for normal or abnormal appearances such as dilacerated roots, root canals, bone loss, etc.


Final exam of a fmx l.jpg
Final Exam of a FMX aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Look for decay last on the BWX and anterior periapicals


Common anatomical landmarks on periapical films l.jpg
Common Anatomical Landmarks on Periapical Films aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive


Zygoma l.jpg

  • Malar Shadow


Coronoid process l.jpg
Coronoid Process aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • This can sometimes be viewed on a second molar shot


Maxillary sinus l.jpg
Maxillary Sinus aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • This frequently seen on molar films


Nasolabial fold l.jpg
Nasolabial Fold aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • The soft tissue shadow cast by the cheek at its junction with the lip


Inverted y l.jpg
INVERTED Y aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • The inverted y appearance is comprised of the floor of the maxillary sinus and the floor of the nasal fossa


Intermaxillary suture l.jpg
Intermaxillary Suture aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Appearance of the two processes of the maxilla joining


Lateral fossa l.jpg
Lateral Fossa aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Appearance of thinner bone in the area of a smaller rooted tooth


Incisive foramen l.jpg
Incisive Foramen aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Exit point for the nasopalatine nerve


Anterior nasal spine l.jpg
Anterior Nasal Spine aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Will appear apical to the roots of the maxillary central incisors


External oblique ridge l.jpg
External Oblique Ridge aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Anterior border of the mandibular ramus


Internal oblique ridge l.jpg
Internal Oblique Ridge aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

Also known as the mylohyoid ridge – serves as attachment for the mylohyoid muscle


Mandibular canal l.jpg
Mandibular Canal aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Appearance of the housing for the inferior alveolar nerve


Mental foramen l.jpg
Mental Foramen aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Anterior exit of the mandibular nerve


Genial tubercle l.jpg
Genial Tubercle aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Attachment for the genioglossus and the geniohyoid muscles


Lingual foramen l.jpg

  • Exit for the incisive branch of the mandibular nerve


Mental ridge l.jpg
Mental Ridge aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Appear apical to the mandibular incisors

Mandibular tori l.jpg
Mandibular Tori aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Will appear as diffuse radiopaque area superimposed on roots of teeth


Root dilaceration l.jpg
Root Dilaceration aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Carefully observe all apices of roots for curves – especially if doing endo or extract!


Root canal treatment l.jpg
Root Canal Treatment aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Examine root canal therapy for type of fill, adequacy of fill, lesions, etc.


Composites and other resins l.jpg
Composites and Other Resins aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Resins will appear radiolucent – so must check clinically to verify the status of the tooth


Metal castings l.jpg
Metal Castings aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

Appearance will be very regular – not anatomical like an amalgam


Amalgam restoration l.jpg
Amalgam Restoration aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • Outline will be irregular following the disease process that was removed

Decay proximity to pulp l.jpg
Decay Proximity to Pulp aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • BWX are very helpful in helping visualize decay proximity to pulp


Bwx and restorability l.jpg
BWX and Restorability aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

  • BWX are the most helpful in determining restorability of a tooth


Panoramic films l.jpg
Panoramic Films aspects of evaluation – systematic and repetitive

Helpful for viewing impacted teeth, bone lesions, and anatomical structures not captured on periapical films.
