Digital Panoramic X-Rays
If you're looking for a comprehensive dental assessment in St. Albert, a panoramic radiograph, also known as a panorex or panoramic x-ray, may be recommended by your dentist. This two-dimensional dental x-ray provides a wide view of the teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures in the mouth, allowing your dentist in St. Albert to assess the overall health of your mouth and diagnose a variety of oral health conditions.
During a panoramic x-ray at a St. Albert dental clinic, patients will be asked to bite down on a specialized tool to help the operator position their head in the correct position. Patients must remain still during the x-ray. Once the x-ray is taken, it is usually displayed digitally on a computer monitor or processed onto regular x-ray film.
Panorex films have several uses in dentistry, and your St. Albert dentist may use them as part of your initial and final dental records for orthodontic assessments, to diagnose wisdom teeth impaction, to assess the jaw joints, and to detect signs of oral cancer. They are also useful for diagnosing advanced periodontal diseases, which are infections of the gums and surrounding structures that support the teeth. If you're looking for a St. Albert dentist to provide a comprehensive dental assessment that may include a panoramic x-ray, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment today.
