Dental X-ray. Dentist pointing at her patient's mouth X-ray plate (held in dentist's left hand). The plate is designed to be placed in a holder that is held inside the patient's closed mouth by the patient's teeth. X-rays are passed through the adjacent teeth to expose the plate. This allows the diagnosis of dental conditions, such as cavities, in a localised area and without the excessive use of X-rays.
