Panorex Digital X-rays
If you’ve had dental X-rays, you know how beneficial they can be in finding cavities. But what about dental problems not pertaining to your teeth? Now there’s a dental X-ray that can help us see other areas of your mouth. Much like a panoramic picture, the Panorex X-ray provides a full view of the scenery — in this case, your entire oral cavity!
The Panorex X-ray is a single picture of all your teeth and surrounding bones. Sometimes referred to as a full mouth X-ray, the Panorex provides a two-dimensional panoramic view of your mouth. The resulting X-ray includes more than just a couple of teeth at a time — and is an excellent alternative to the tiny pictures we has to piece together to see a complete set of your teeth. What this means to you as a patient is that there is greatly improved information for the doctor and can see much more than with traditional Xrays, thus allowing better diagnosis and treatment to you as the patient.
The Panorex X-ray also exposes parts of your jaw that can’t be seen with traditional dental X-rays.
