Panoramic radiography, also called panoramic x-ray, is a two-dimensional (2-D) dental x-ray examination that captures the entire mouth in a single image, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, surrounding structures and tissues.
Unlike a traditional intraoral x-ray where the film is placed inside of the mouth, the film for a panoramic x-ray is contained inside of the machine.
A panoramic x-ray is a commonly performed examination by dentists and oral surgeons in everyday practice and is an important diagnostic tool. This examination is used to plan treatment for full and partial dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
Panoramic x-rays show the entire mouth area – all teeth on both upper and lower jaws – on a single x-ray. The cephalometric x-rays are used to look at the teeth in relation to the jaw and the profile of the individual. They project the entire side of the patient’s head. They are highly helpful in the planning of the right treatment for the individuals.
