The risks associated with the use of ionizing radiation are a constant concern not only for practitioners but also for legislators who have included this ethical rule in the Code of public safety. It proposes reduction of risks by insisting that all X-Rays be taken only when they accord with one of the fundamental principles of X-Ray protection: they must be justified by clear diagnostic need. In direct application of this principle the French government in 2006 published a guide for the management of radiological and dental and stomatological examinations. However, this document dealt only slightly with orthodontics, a field in which the flourishing and burgeoning of radiological techniques made it urgent that regulations for use of X-Rays in orthodontics be brought up to date on an ongoing and permanent basis. The objective of this article is, accordingly, after presentation of a systematic and critical analysis of the lit erature, to propose up-to-date recommendations for proper taking of orthodontic X-Ray films.
