Panoramic Imaging at Distinctive Dentistry
Panoramic imaging is an important diagnostic tool that works in a similar way to regular digital dental x-rays, except that it covers a wider area. A panoramic X-ray captures a view of your entire jaw structure including your gums, teeth, sinuses, and jaw joints. These images are taken to look for bone abnormalities, tumors and oral cancer, advanced periodontal disease, impacted teeth, infections and fractures. They are also used in treatment planning for dentures, extractions, and implants.
With such accurate technology at your service, we can give you the best advice on achieving your oral health goals, take you step by step through your treatment options, monitor your progress and keep an accurate record for future treatment and insurance requirements.
