Dental Digital Panoramic X-Ray / Dental Cephalometric X-Ray: No longer in its infancy, digital radiography has truly arrived. Dental Digital Panoramic X-ray has followed along, with more precision and lower radiation. While the cost compared to film may seem daunting, it's soon forgotten when considering the benefits of image quality, instant exposure, zero use of chemicals or darkrooms, archival ability, reproducibility, and colleague communication.

Radiographic, or X-ray, examinations provide the dentist with an important tool that shows the condition of your teeth, its roots, jaw placement and the overall composition of your facial bones. X-rays can help the dentist to determine the presence or degree of periodontal (gum) disease, abscesses and many abnormal growths, such as cysts and tumors. X-rays also can show the exact location of impacted and unerupted teeth. They can pinpoint the location of cavities and other signs of disease that may not be possible to detect through a visual examination.

Preparation/instructions

    When you were referred by your physician for a radiological exam, you may have been told about certain instructions to be done prior to the exam, or when you were scheduling your appointment, the scheduler should have informed you about the preparations that should be done prior to your exam. If you did not or if you want a recheck, you can refer to the information listed below.
