Clinical photographs are an essential component of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. High-quality photographs allow the clinician to evaluate both the skeletal tissues and the soft-tissue drape. A photograph provides important visual reference for monitoring growth and developmental changes, providing the patient with a view of the changes and providing the therapist with credible visual material for teaching and research. Photographs are an essential part of clinical records for a number of reasons. Within a matter of months, patients and parents tend to forget how severe the original malocclusion was. Having slides available at every visit reminds both the orthodontist and the patient of the original situation, against which all improvements can be judged. Other important aspect is for medico legal requirements. This paper highlights each aspect of photography in orthodontics.
