DIGITAL PANORAMIC X-RAY
An orthopantomogram (OPG), also known as an “orthopantomogram” or “panorex”, is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw.
It shows a two-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear.
OPG's are used by Dentists to provide information on :
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Periodontal bone loss
- Finding the source of dental pain
- Assessment for the placement of dental implants
- Orthodontic assessment
