Digital Panoramic X-ray
A panoramic X-ray is a very important non-invasive diagnostic tool for our dental practice. It covers a wider area than a conventional intraoral x-ray and, as a result, provides valuable information about the maxillary sinuses, tooth positioning and other bone abnormalities. This examination is also used to plan treatment for full and partial dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
A panoramic x-ray can also reveal dental and medical problems such as:
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Cysts in the jaw bones
- Jaw tumors and oral cancer
- Impacted teeth including wisdom teeth
- Jaw disorders (also known as temporomandibular joint or TMJ disorders)
