Dental radiographic techniques include intra- and extraoral techniques.
Among the intraoral techniques, the most used are the bisector technique and the
interproximal technique. These are the radiographic techniques that produce greater
sharpness or details of the image of the dental structures, with the exception of CTBC.
The extraoral radiographic technique most commonly used in the dental routine is the
panoramic radiograph, since it encompasses the entire maxillo-mandibular complex,
the teeth naturally, and neighboring structures.
