Diagnostic parameters can be used to make a periodontal diagnosis, to create a treatment plan, to estimate disease risk, to document tissue stability, remodeling or breakdown, and perhaps to detect periodontal risk factors for cardiovascular events. In the future, a diagnostic aid should be developed that combined and covers the radiographic image with probing data.Today's periodontal practice ranges from the detection, diagnosis and treatment of alveolar bone loss due to periodontitis to an emphasis on the regeneration of lost periodontium and reconstruction with implant replacement. These new treatment options have increased the need and demand for more advanced diagnostics in periodontics. Intraoral radiography, however, still remains the most common imaging method in periodontics. The use of 90 kVp vertical bitewings instead of a conventional full mouth series allows the clinician to tailor the intraoral radiographic examination to the needs of the periodontal patient while reducing the over exposure. Digital imaging is being used extensively in clinical research and as a method to study the progression of periodontal disease. The advantage of digital information is that it allows for correction of variations in contrast, computer storage and advanced measurement techniques. Accuracy of radiographs used in periodontal diagnosis have been shown to be due to the perception of the dentist visually interpreting the radiograph. The increased use of endosseous implants in periodontal care requires the periodontist to be familiar with extraoral radiography for treatment planning. Panoramic, intraoral and tomographic images are commonly combined in the clinical assessment of implant placement. Most implant manufacturers now use digital measurement methods to longitudinally assess implant success or failure over time. These implant assessment techniques are an extension of the methods that are used to assess periodontal progression of alveolar bone support around teeth. The digital era is only in its infancy and there is already a lot of new imaging technology on the market. Some of this technology will address part of the diagnostic dilemmas of the periodontist. Some of it will not. Science and knowledge are required to distinguish between hype and truth and between promise and performance.
