Abstract

Ultrasonography as an imaging technique in dentistry has been broadly analyzed in recent years due to several advantages that it provides. It is a non-invasive, cost effective, portable, and radiation free imaging technique. However, in comparison to other imaging techniques intraoral ultrasonography has been rarely in application. It has recently been drawing more attention due to its advantages. Ultrasonic image is produced by ultrahigh-frequency sound waves. It is used in dentistry for the assessment of the salivary glands and ducts, as well as the floor of the mouth, buccal mucosa, labial mucosa, and palatal mucosa, the tongue, periodontal tissues and periapical lesions. The main aim of this review is to provide an overview of the facilitation of intraoral ultrasonography in dentistry.
