Abstract

With recent concern about the cumulative effects of radiation exposure, routine radiographic examination of edentulous patients is being questioned. While the present study reports a lower incidence of positive findings than previous panoramic surveys, we still find potentially complicating conditions. Radiographic examination of new edentulous patients still appears warranted.
