What Are Panoramic Dental X-rays

Posted on 8/22/2022 by Evan
What Are Panoramic Dental X-raysAs the name suggests, panoramic x-rays, or dental panoramic radiographs, capture an image of the whole mouth in two dimensions. Tooth, bottom, and top jaws, as well as the tissues and structures in and around the mouth are all included in this category.

Panoramic Dental X-rays are Specialized

The jaw is a curled anatomical feature, much like the horseshoe shape. On the other hand, the picture of the curving structure produced by the panoramic x-ray is flat. In most cases, it includes specifics on the bones and teeth.

A thorough x-ray examination benefits the diagnosis and treatment of many medical disorders. You will be subjected to a low amount of ionizing radiation to obtain images of the organs and structures within the body.

X-rays are the medical imaging method that has been around the longest and is used the most often. In contrast to more conventional intraoral x-rays, in which the film and x-ray detector are positioned inside the patient's mouth, the film for a panoramic x-ray is housed entirely within the imaging unit itself.
