The oral cavity is a challenging area for radiological diagnosis. Soft-tissue, glandular structures and osseous relations are in close proximity and a sound understanding of radiological anatomy and common pathways of disease spread is required. In this pictorial review we present the anatomical and pathological concepts of the oral cavity with emphasis on the complementary nature of diagnostic imaging modalities.
