Photography is one of the Diagnostic Tools for communication, Diagnosis and Documentation. Lots of diagnostic information regarding Intra-oral as well as extra-oral features can be captured with this tool. Photographs are excellent tools to educate patients and to show the progress of the treatment. Even though the cephalogram can gives an accurate information regarding hard tissue anomalies, its correlation with soft tissue dynamics is also essential. With the advent of digital photography there is a paradigm shift in the diagnosis of facial anomalies and structures.
