Panoramic radiography, also known as a panoramic x-ray or a panoramic film, is a type of dental x-ray that provides a wide-angle view of the teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures.
It is often used to evaluate the overall health of the teeth and jaws, and to detect problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and abnormalities in the jawbone.
Cure Dental offers panoramic radiography as part of our services. If you need a panoramic x-ray, you can schedule an appointment with Cure Dental to perform the procedure.
During a panoramic x-ray, you will be asked to stand or sit in front of a special x-ray machine, and to bite down on a small plastic device that helps to position your head and jaw. The x-ray machine will then take a series of images as it rotates around your head. The entire process usually takes about 5-10 minutes. It is important to note that panoramic radiography exposes you to a small amount of radiation, but the risk of any adverse effects is considered very low.
Your dental professional at Cure Dental will take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety during the procedure. Panoramic x-rays are generally considered to be safe and effective, and they can provide valuable information about the health of your teeth and jaws. Your dental professional can provide more information about the benefits and limitations of panoramic radiography and can help you determine if the procedure is right for you.
