Dentists are using Panorex to capture X-rays
Dentists nationwide are using a new imaging technology to capture complete views of a patient's upper and lower jaws, teeth, temporomandibular joints, and sinuses. Panorex imaging can take a 360-degree picture of the teeth, head, sinuses, and bones, allowing dentists to identify issues that a normal X-ray can't.
Sitting in a chair that is part of the Panorex, the patient rests their chin rests on a small ledge. The Panorex takes a 360-degree picture as it rotates around the patient's head.
Dentists can gain a tremendous amount of information by being able to view the full structure of the head. A dentist may be able to see potential problems earlier and make better treatment decisions sooner. The Panorex is also capable of viewing specific types of structural problems and infections.
