Different x-rays tell us different information about your oral health. A panoramic x-ray shows us the big picture – your teeth, bone, jaw joints, and even sinuses.
We also use a panoramic x-ray, which moves around your head while it captures an image, to give us a full view of your smile. This type of image is helpful in monitoring bone levels, planning extractions, and determining dental implant location. It also gives us a view of your jaw joints.
Panoramic x-rays are in 2-D. We also have 3-D cone beam technology for certain types of treatment and surgeries.
