Abstract:

An analysis of Panoramic radiographs of United States Air Force recruits indicates that Panoramic radiographic screening examination provides a simple and rapid method of recording the general dental health of a large population and furnishes information on dental treatment requirements. The Panoramic radiograph used in conjunction with the Polaroid photograph of the dentition is a good means of dental identification. Specific areas evaluated in this study include missing teeth, required extractions, deciduous and supernumerary teeth, retained roots, impactions, radiolucencies, radiopacities and radiopacitiesradiolucencies.
