Dental radiology is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the use of imaging techniques to diagnose, monitor, and treat dental conditions. It involves the use of various types of X-rays and other forms of radiation to create detailed images of the teeth, gums, and jaw. These images help dental professionals assess the health of these areas, identify issues such as cavities, impacted teeth, and bone loss, and plan treatments accordingly. Techniques used in dental radiology include traditional X-rays, digital X-rays, panoramic X-rays, and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), among others.
