Panoramic X-Rays

A panoramic X-ray, also known as a panoramic radiograph, is a dental imaging technique that provides a wide and comprehensive view of a patient's oral and maxillofacial structures in a single image. This type of X-ray is commonly used by dentists, orthodontists, oral surgeons, and other dental specialists to assess various dental and facial conditions.

Uses : -

Diagnosis: Panoramic X-rays help diagnose a variety of dental issues such as impacted teeth, dental caries (cavities), periodontal (gum) disease, and oral infections.

Orthodontics: Orthodontists use panoramic X-rays to evaluate the alignment of teeth, the development of permanent teeth, and the presence of any underlying issues that might affect orthodontic treatment.

Surgical Planning: Oral surgeons and maxillofacial surgeons use panoramic X-rays to plan extractions, dental implant placement, and corrective jaw surgeries.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Assessment: Panoramic X-rays can help assess the condition of the TMJs, which are involved in jaw movement and can be affected by conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
