ABSTRACT:

Dental radiography holds extreme importance in disease diagnosis. The technique has provided several advantages in visualization during complex procedures of dental implantation. The accessibility of the techniques has made the radiologists incautious about the difference between need and ease of practice. The practice of radiography has led to unnecessary exposure to patients due to neglected attitude towards radiation surveillance principles. The preset study evaluates prevalence of different radiography techniques in dental implantation and implant infections. The level of awareness among radiologists has also been studied through the questionnaire based survey. The study has shown that there is need for providing awareness regarding radiation safety of patients and radiation surveillance principles for routine practice of these principles to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure to patients.

KEYWORDS:
