Digital x-rays are effective methods of capturing diagnostic images for our patients. They emit 90% less radiation than film x-rays, give high-quality pictures in under 5 seconds without hazardous developer chemicals, and can be quickly shared with referring professionals. With this technology, we can identify tooth structure or bone changes more accurately, resulting in improved overall dental treatment for our patients.
Panoramic dental x-rays provide a complete view of the mouth. The result is a flat depiction of the curving structure of the jaw, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, TMJ joints, and nasal and sinus areas.
How Are Panoramic X-rays Taken?
The panoramic X-ray gives the dentist a two-dimensional image of both the upper and lower jaws - from ear to ear. Panoramic X-rays are most commonly used to reveal wisdom teeth' location and ensure dental implants are properly placed. Panoramic X-rays are a powerful diagnostic tool that may also be used to plan future treatment. Because less radiation enters the body, they are safer than other forms of x-rays. Please contact your dentist if you have any questions or concerns concerning panoramic x-rays.
