  32. to prject an imacted mandibular third molar anteriorly onot the image receptor, a mandibular disto-oblique paricapical radiograph requires a
    10 degree shift in the horizontal angulation
  33. a competent dental hygienist and dental assistant must be able to identify which of the following radiographically
    normal anatomy
  34. which of the following facial bones would most likely appear on a periapical radiograph
  35. bone sometimes has a mixed radiopaque-radiolucent appearance due to the nature of the
    trabeculae patterns
  36. whicn of the following will most likey appear as a radiopacity outlining the tooth root
    lamina dura
  37. when nutrient canals open at the surface of the bone, the often appear radiographically as
    small radiolucent dots
  38. which of these structures appears radiolucent
  39. a periaplical radiograph of a 10 year old will most likely reveal developin gpermanent dentition
    evidence of a congenitally missing permanent tooth is clled impaction

    • the second is false

  41. each of these features will appear radiolucent except
  42. each of these features will appear radiopaque except
  43. which of the following is the best reccomended sequence for identifing normal radiographic anatomy
    • 1. determin if max or mand
    • 2. determine of anterior or posterior
    • 3. determine if structure is paque or lucent
  44. each of the following may appear on a PA radiograph of the max anterior region except
    maxillary tuberosity
  45. each of the following may appear on a PA radiograph of the max post except
  46. a mand landmark feature that may be imaged on a PA radiograph of the max posterior region is the
    submanibular fossa
