Dental Radiography: Bitewing technique

Radiographs are an important part of dental diagnosis and treatment planning. Patients may be prescribed radiographs that will be used along with a clinical examination. Bitewing radiography is a commonly used dental x-ray technique and may be a component of the radiologic examination. Bitewing radiographs provide vital information to aid in the diagnosis of the most common dental diseases; specifically tooth decay and periodontal bone loss or gum disease. Additional important findings may be detected on bitewings, including the condition of fillings and the presence of calculus or tartar.
