Dental radiographs, ie dental films, are the most important diagnostic tools for the diagnosis of intraoral diseases, especially those related to hard tissue such as teeth and jawbone. Digital radiography devices, which is a computer-aided technique, allow us to perform a detailed evaluation by allowing color and light play on the film image using a very low radiation dose. In addition, MR and CT are the films that can be used as an adjunct to the diagnosis of joint diseases, especially in implant applications.
