What Are Panoramic X-rays?
Panoramic x-rays, or orthopantomograms, are wraparound photographs of the face and teeth that offer our dentists a view that would otherwise be invisible. X-rays can reveal early signs of dental issues, such as cavities, tooth fractures, and bone loss. Panoramic x-rays are easy to perform and are generally only taken on an as-needed basis. The dental team at Creating Beautiful Smiles in Racine, WI uses panoramic x-rays to gain a better view of each tooth, the sinus areas, nasal areas, and mandibular nerve.
How Are Panoramic X-rays Taken?
Dr. Palmer and Dr. Smalkoski utilize panoramic x-ray technology for a variety of reasons. This versatile dental imaging technology can evaluate the progression of TMJ, expose cysts and impacted teeth, expose jawbone fractures, reveal gum disease and cavities, and aid the dentist in creating a treatment plan for dentures, braces, and implants. Panoramic x-rays provide ear-to-ear two-dimensional views of the upper and lower jaw. The Panorex® equipment utilized at Creating Beautiful Smiles consists of a rotating arm that holds the x-ray generator and a moving film attachment that holds the images. Your head will be positioned between these two devices and the x-ray generator moves around your head to take the images. This noninvasive technology is useful for patients with a sensitive gag reflex who don't react well to traditional bitewing x-rays. Panoramic x-rays take only a few minutes, and your dentist will be able to show you any abnormalities and go over treatment options almost immediately after the images are captured.
