     Panoramic Dental X-rays

The Panoramic X-Ray system enables our dentists to see the Big Picture.

Dental X-ray, also known as radiograph, is a significant tool for the dentist. The 3 most common categories of Dental X-rays are the Periapical X-ray, Bitewing X-ray, and Panoramic X-rays. Bitewing radiographs are used during regular dental check-ups and helpful in exposing dental cavities amid teeth. Periapical radiographs show the whole tooth, roots included, as well as the bone surrounding the tooth. These X-rays are helpful in diagnosing a dental abscess as well as any periodontal gum problem. The third type of x-ray frequently used in dentistry; the Panoramic radiograph provides an extensive overview of the entire oral cavity. Panoramic X-ray provides information about the upper and lower jawbone, teeth, sinuses, and all other soft and hard tissues of the head region and neck region.

One big benefit of the Panoramic X-ray is its simplicity to use. In contrast to other types of X-rays where the X-ray film is positioned inside the patient's oral cavity, the Panoramic film is actually in a machine that orbits around the patient's head. Some patients may be acquainted with the Panoramic X-ray as it is normally taken when the wisdom teeth are being examined. The Panoramic X-ray will also expose any deep cavities and dental gum issues, but it is not as exact as Bitewing X-ray or Periapical X-ray. The Panoramic X-ray has lots of other applications, which include examining patients with past or present TMJ issues; those who need complete or partial removable dental braces, dentures or dental implants; those who are vulnerable to or thought of having oral cancer symptoms or any other tumor of the jaw or have damaged teeth especially damaged wisdom teeth or have undergone any recent physical assault to the face or teeth as Panoramic X-ray can assist in identifying a fractured jaw; and for those patients who cannot tolerate other types of films (Severe Gaggers).

The Panoramic radiograph can also recognize some not so ordinary problems, such as calcium deposits within the carotid artery that may be potential sign for a cardiac stroke. In an unusual situation, one of our dentists can recall a patient who told us that he had endured for many years with regular sinus infections. Our dentist took a Panoramic radiograph that exposed an infected tooth which was upside-down and was actually stuck in his sinus!

The Panoramic X-ray is a significant part of a complete dental exam. We usually recommend taking a Panoramic X-ray once after five or seven years for majority of our patients. Even though the Panoramic X-ray does not give us as much detailed information as other types of X-rays, it can reveal potential issues that cannot be revealed by Periapical X-rays or Bitewing X-rays.

Benefits of Panoramic X-ray
1. No radiation residue inside a patient's body after the Panoramic X-ray.
2. Panoramic X-rays normally show no side effects in the characteristic diagnostic range for this examination.
3. Panoramic x-rays are suitable for very young children as the film does not have to be positioned inside the mouth.

Risks of Panoramic X-ray
1. Pregnant women should always notify the dentist before taking any X-ray examinations.
