In order to give you the dental care you need, our dentist will need to gather as much information as possible about your smile. In order to do that, we use panoramic X-rays. Most X-rays show only a section of your teeth and jaw, but panoramic X-rays give our team a full view of your upper and lower dental arches, including both the teeth and the jawbones. The process itself is simple and noninvasive. The machine rotates around your head to instantly give our team high-definition images of your teeth and jaws. Our dentist may use panoramic X-rays to:
- Plan an orthodontic treatment and evaluate its progress and effectiveness.
- Locate impacted teeth, including wisdom teeth.
- Evaluate the jaws for signs of a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
- Identify potential areas of oral cancer.
- Find abscesses, tumors or cysts.
Panoramic X-rays are completely noninvasive and can be completed quickly. You simply stand in one place, and the machine does the rest. Call our office today for more information and to schedule your appointment.
