Oral Medicine and Radiology is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of oral and maxillofacial diseases, disorders, and abnormalities. It combines the use of clinical evaluation, imaging techniques, and laboratory investigations to arrive at a definitive diagnosis and appropriate management plan. This branch of dentistry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral and maxillofacial diseases, including oral potentially malignant disorders, oral cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, and salivary gland disorders. Radiology plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, using various 2D & 3D imaging techniques such as intra oral and extraoral radiographs which includes RVG, bitewing radiographs, occlusal radiograph, OPG , Cephalograms and CBCT .The ultimate goal of oral medicine and radiology is to promote oral health and well-being, and to ensure that patients receive the best possible management and treatment for their oral and maxillofacial conditions.
