This article is very basic[edit]

woah... this article needs alot of work (Bouncingmolar 10:50, 18 February 2007 (UTC))

Why is this page way better than the Projectional radiograhy page?? Schrodingers cats (talk) 03:36, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Rename proposal[edit]

I think that Dental Radiography would be a more appropriate title for this page. It should also include information about OPG's and Digital X-rays which should be merged when this article becomes more complete. (Bouncingmolar 10:54, 18 February 2007 (UTC))

Absolutely. It should be moved to Dental radiography, though this is not the same as the speciality: Oral and maxillofacial radiology, which still needs an article. - Dozenist talk 13:53, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Restructured skeleton of article[edit]

I hope i have helped format the structure this article can be expanded into. (Bouncingmolar 12:29, 18 February 2007 (UTC))

I like all the work you have been doing. Keep up the good work. I have been a bit busy of late, but anytime I can help I will. Drop me any questions on my talk page if you have any. - Dozenist talk 13:57, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

I just saw the merge proposal of full mouth series to this article. I completely support the merger as an article titled "dental radiography" is more appropriate than an article titled "full mouth series". The latter is a term which can be explained in this article. Since there is already a skeleton for the necessary information in this article, the information in Full mouth series can be incorporated nicely here. - Dozenist talk 17:35, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

When I started FMS, I meant to keep to that topic, but it kinda just spiralled into all dental radiography. I'll see what I can do. DRosenbach (Talk | Contribs) 20:33, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Attempted Merge[edit]

Thought I'd take a stab at it. Splendide 20:49, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

If it's a merge, shouldn't the other article no longer exist? DRosenbach (Talk | Contribs) 17:49, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
Done. 'full mouth series' now directs here. Splendide 21:24, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

cost and radiation data[edit]

We need to know cost and radiation data, risks etc for the various kinds of dental xrays: 2D, CT, CBCT, etc. These resources may help with radiation data:

Where to look for cost and risk data? - (talk) 02:11, 5 February 2008 (UTC)


Specific measured doses need to be added, to substantiate the assertion in sentence one of paragraph three, "The dosage of X-ray radiation received by a dental patient is typically small, equivalent to a few days' worth of background radiation environmental radiation exposure, or similar to the dose received during a cross-country airplane flight."

Proposed merge with Oral and maxillofacial radiology[edit]

Same specialty? Lesion (talk) 17:30, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
