Panoramic X-Rays

Schedule An Appointment · Janet Loy, DDS

Panoramic x-rays (also known as Panorex® or orthopantomograms) are wraparound digital photographs of the face and teeth. They offer a view that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. x-rays in general, expose hidden structures, such as wisdom teeth, reveal preliminary signs of cavities, and also show fractures and bone loss.

Unlike bitewing x-rays that need to be taken every few years, panoramic x-rays are generally only taken on an as-needed basis. A panoramic x-ray is not conducted to give a detailed view of each tooth, but rather to provide a better view of the sinus areas, nasal areas and mandibular nerve. Panoramic x-rays are preferable to bitewing x-rays when a patient is in extreme pain, and when a sinus problem is suspected to have caused dental problems.

Panoramic x-rays are extremely versatile in dentistry, and are used to:

  • Assess patients with an extreme gag reflex
  • Evaluate the progression of TMJ
  • Expose cysts and abnormalities
  • Expose impacted teeth
  • Expose jawbone fractures
  • Plan treatment (full and partial dentures, braces and implants)
  • Reveal gum disease and cavities
