In recent decades and an aging society, the prevalence of special needs dental patients has increased noticeably both in children and adults. In most dental patients, the dental radiograph is one of the essential diagnostic tools that help make the proper diagnosis and treatment plan. In this article, we report two cases of special needs patients; aging, bedridden, and teenage autism. In the first case, the periapical bisecting-angle and occlusal topographic radiography were taken with the patient on the mobile hospital bed. In the second case, the oblique lateral radiographs were performed for diagnosis of third molar impaction. The principle of periapical bisecting-angle, occlusal topographic, and oblique lateral radiography is also reviewed.
