We have the technology on site to aquire two-dimensional view of the upper and lower jaw, from ear to ear called a Panoramic Radiograph. This image involves a low radiation dose generally equivalent to about one set of four bitewing intraoral films.
Panoramic images are used by health care professionals to provide information on:
- Impacted wisdom teeth, diagnosis and treatment planning
- Periodontal bone loss and periapical involvement.
- Identifying the source of dental pain
- Assessment for the placement of dental implants
- Orthodontic assessment. pre and post operative
- Diagnosis of developmental anomalies
- Carcinoma in relation to the jaws
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunctions and ankylosis.
- Diagnosis of osteosarcoma, ameloblastoma, renal osteodystrophy affecting jaws and hypophosphatemia.
- Diagnosis, and pre- and post-surgical assessment of oral and maxillofacial trauma such as fractures
- Salivary stones
- other diagnostic and treatment applications
