A Panoramic X-ray depicts a view of your mouth from one side to the other. This image can help the dentist understand the relationship between your teeth, jaws, and occlusion (bite, or how your top and bottom teeth fit together). When planning extensive restorative or cosmetic dentistry cases, a Panoramic X-ray may be necessary in addition to intra- and extra-oral photos and digital X-rays.
Our Raleigh office uses digital technology for Panoramic X-rays that are clear, accurate, and easily stored and transferred. Best of all, a digital Panoramic X-ray can be taken with up to 90% less radiation than a traditional Panoramic X-ray. We can review the digital Panoramic images with you from our chairside monitor, explaining what the dentist sees and helping you make an informed decision.
