Our digital panoramic x-ray is a very impressive piece of external imaging equipment in that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that x-rays inside the mouth do not. As you stand at the machine you will place your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned, it will rotate around your head taking a full view of the teeth, bone, jaw joints and sinuses.
The ability to view your mouth and surrounding structures as a whole is very informative. It allows us to see potential problems and make sure that everything looks as it should. A routine panoramic x-ray is taken on all patients every 3-5 years, or when we need an image for wisdom teeth, implants, and other reasons. To learn more please call us at (573) 446-2687. We're always happy to hear from you!
