Abstract: Dental radiography is usually straightforward; however, a few patients do offer a greater challenge to the dentist aiming to achieve diagnostic images. Ironically, it is frequently these tricky patients where a good quality radiograph will be of greatest use when treatment planning. This article has been written primarily to provide some tips aimed at increasing the likelihood of achieving a diagnostic image for a patient who finds the procedure difficult and includes some techniques that can be applied to all patients having a dental radiograph taken.

Clinical relevance: Achieving good quality radiographs is essential to aid in both diagnosis and treatment planning.
