Panoramic x-rayOne of the most helpful tools for dentists is the pan-oral x-ray machine.

This machine takes a single x-ray of your head from the eyes down to your mid neck and from ear to ear. It enables dentists to get a general overview of your mouth, especially those hard-to-reach areas.


This allows us to see:

  • Any hard tissue changes in the bones that support your teeth (checking for signs of periodontal disease)
  • Your entire teeth -  from the crown to the bottom of the root (checking for abscesses, root fractures, impacted wisdom tooth positions or ill-fitting restorations)
  • Jaw fractures
  • Changes in your jaw joint
  • Diseases of the jaw bones (such as cancer, cysts and other mouth diseases)
  • Sinus problems
