A panoramic x-ray provides a very broad view of teeth, upper and lower jaws, sinuses, jaw joints and nasal areas.
A Panoramic X-ray is not designed to find cavities, but rather it reveals impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, fractures, infections, cysts and/or tumors. It also helps Dr. Dan rule out any jaw pathology, evaluate the TMJ and the growth & development of the facial structures, and determine the necessity for future orthodontic treatment. A Panoramic X-ray provides information that other dental x-rays cannot show. Based upon this information, we can assist you in securing the proper dental care.
