Section C: Pediatric Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
Growth and Development
Periodic growth and development concerns dictate the use of a panoramic radiograph if possible. Films taken at age 9 for examination of the developing permanent dentition and at age 15 to view the developing third molars are recommended.
Radiographs With the Uncooperative Child
Many times dental radiographs are not possible due to age, maturity, or fear. Films can be exposed during a sedation visit or during general anesthesia. In an emergency situation, extraoral techniques or restraint may be required.
