Panoramic Radiographs

Panoramic RadiographPanoramic radiographs show the entire mouth area – all teeth on both upper and lower jaws – on a single X-ray.

This type of X-ray requires a special panoramic X-ray machine. The machines may have chin rests, forehead rests, and side head positioners, plus bite-blocks that patients will be asked to close their teeth around. All this may look and feel intimidating, but the process is very safe and often uses less radiation than intraoral radiographs.
