A panoramic X-ray is a 2-dimensional picture that shows the lower and upper teeth and jaws.
Panoramic X-rays give our dental staff a unique view into your mouth, and can help us diagnose and detect:
- Orthodontic problems
- Oral cancer
- Wisdom teeth impaction
- Advanced periodontal disease
Panoramic X-rays of your upper and lower teeth should be taken once or twice a year to help avoid unnecessary dental problems. If you would like to learn more about panoramic X-rays and your options for a healthier, more radiant smile, please contact our Portland, OR dental practice. We look forward to helping you attain optimal oral health.
