Panorex
 

Pan_x_ray.jpg A panorex is a very impressive piece of imaging machinery in that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. Initially you will stand with your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned in the machine, it will rotate around your entire head taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses and bones in approximately 10 seconds. Our x-ray machines are filmless and digital, which decreases radiation exposure by 80%,  and the images can be viewed almost instantly.

The ability to view the full structure of your head as a whole is very diagnostic to the dentist. It will allow us to see any potential problems and make sure that everything is functioning as it should be. The panorex is capable of viewing specific types of structural problems, infections or asymmetry among many others.
