Panoramic X-ray

Importance of Panoramic X-ray

A panoramic x-ray is an essential tool for dentists as it allows them to accurately diagnose patients. Panoramic x-rays cover a much larger area than a conventional intraoral x-ray. Panoramic x-rays provide much more information about the maxillary sinuses, tooth positioning and other bone abnormalities. A detailed and in-depth analysis allows for an accurate and effective treatment plan for full and partial dentures, braces, extractions and implants.

What are some common uses of the procedure?

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)
  • Sinusitis
