How can you determine if a bite-wing or PA is a left or right image? I’m having trouble reading and mounting xrays quickly.

With time and practice, mounting radiographs gets easier. You need to be patient with yourself and give yourself time to learn. With that said, tooth anatomy is big indicator. An easy trick is to look at restorations – if you know a patient has a crown on #14 or a restoration on #3, then you know where those radiagraphs should be mounted. Don’t hesitate to Google, “Tips for mounting dental radiographs,” there are YouTube videos and a plethora of links with information and helpful hints.
