Panoramic Digital X-Rays
Visual exams by a dentist are important, but they don't let us see what's happening deep within enamel or gum tissue. Panoramic digital x-rays allow us to find these problems when they’re small, long before they cause discomfort.
Our patients also like the safety of digital x-rays because significantly less radiation is required to produce these images compared to film x-rays. There are estimates that say digital x-rays reduce your exposure by as much as 80%!
Panoramic x-rays are used to take highly detailed, two-dimensional images that include the teeth, upper and lower jaws, and surrounding structures and tissues in just one x-ray. Digital panoramic imaging is quick and comfortable and significantly reduces your exposure to radiation.
The process is easy. We take extra-oral (outside the mouth) x-rays without the need for traditional x-ray films placed in your mouth. This technology is especially beneficial for young children who can’t tolerate intraoral (inside the mouth) x-rays.
