Our digital panorex is a very impressive piece of imaging machinery in that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. Initially you will stand with your chin resting on a small ledge. Once positioned the machine will rotate around your entire head taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses and bones.
The ability to view the full structure of your head as a whole is very informative to the dentist. It will allow us to see any potential problems and make sure that everything is functioning as it should be. The panorex is capable of viewing specific types of structural problems, infections or asymmetry among many others. Our digital pan also takes bitewing images for those with small mouths or others who don’t like having an intra oral digital x-ray placed inside thier mouths.
