In order to provide you with the best possible dental care, it is essential that our dentist is able to accurately evaluate and diagnose your oral health. One of the state-of-the-art tools we use to do that is panoramic X-rays. While standard X-rays, called bitewing X-rays, provide us with a view of a few teeth and the supporting bone structure, panoramic X-rays allow us to view the full upper and lower dental arches – including all of the teeth, upper and lower jawbones, and the surrounding facial structures. Using panoramic X-rays, our dentist is able to:
Assess the need for orthodontics and evaluate the progress of treatment
Diagnose impacted wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth
Analyze the development of periodontal disease
Evaluate the TMJ (jaw joint) and diagnose a TMJ disorder
Detect oral cancer
Plan dental implant placement
Diagnose cavities (tooth decay) and other dental problems
Evaluate the extent of dental and/or facial trauma
Detect abscesses, cysts, and tumors
Using the panoramic X-ray machine is fast and comfortable. The machine simply rotates around your head and provides our dentist with high-definition, nearly instantaneous images that we can then use to evaluate your oral health. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about panoramic X-rays.
