The placement device which is used to hold the dental film in place when the jaws are closed is known as the bitewing. 48. Panoramic radiograph An extraoral radiograph with a curved surface which is used to show both jaws entirely, in a single, continuous film. 49. Cephalometric tracing This is a tracing of a radiograph, showing the entire head which uses anatomical points and planes for linear and angular measurement. These tracings can be used to both assess growth and to determine treatment plans 50. Pulp test A group of thermal and electrical assessments of dental pulp. A healthy tooth is represented by a similar response to that of its neighbouring teeth. 51. Periodontium The connective tissue surrounding and supporting the tooth root which attaches the tooth to its bony socket: including the periodontal fibres, gingivae, desmodentium, alveolar, cementum and supporting bone. 52.

The term, “Baby Bottle Caries Syndrome” suggests that he foremost cause of early childhood caries is inappropriate bottle feeding, although it is not necessarily the only contributing factor.

Class I Occlusion Angle’s class I molar relationship states that, firstly, the mid-buccal.groove of the first mandibular molar into contact with the mesiobuccal.cusp of the first maxillary.molar comes. Next, the mesial surface of the medial marginal ridge comes into contact with the distal surface of the distal marginal ridge of the maxillary molar. Lastly, mesopalatal cusps of maxillary molars sit in the central fossa of the mandibular
