A digital panorex is a very impressive piece of imaging machinery in that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. Initially you will stand with your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned in the machine, it will rotate around your entire head taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses and bones.
The ability to view the full structure of your head as a whole is very important to the dentist. It will allow us to see any potential problems and insure that everything is functioning as it should be. The panarex is capable of viewing specific types of structural problems, infections and asymmetry among others.
The open concept of this Panarex allows the operator to position the patient comfortably. Children can see an accompanying adult throughout the procedure for an added sense of security. Wheelchair patients are easily accomodated.
