Intraoral imaging is the most common X-ray diagnostic method in dentistry. The term intraoral comes from the image receptor being inside (intra) the patient’s mouth (oral). Both the X-ray source and the receptor are stationary during the exposure. Intraoral imaging is used for a variety of different tasks such as diagnosing caries, endodontic file location, inflammation of the teeth, etc. Intraoral imaging produces a wide range of clinically relevant dental views, e.g. periapical, bite wing, Full Mouth Series (FMS) and occlusal.
