Dental Assistant Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This article describes the assembly and clinical use of a newer type of XCP dental X–ray film positioning device, called the XCP–ORA. The previous version of the XCP consists of three separate devices for taking anterior, posterior, and bitewing radiographs. The XCP–ORA dental X–ray film holder combines all three of these dental X–ray functions into one device, in contrast to the previous generation of XCP holders. The large paralleling ring of the device contains three color–coded square–shaped holes that attach to a metal rod.
