Orthopantomogram – a method of dental diagnostics, which allows to get an expanded scan of such a complex anatomical region as a tooth-jaw system.
The panoramic shot of the jaw contains information on the upper and lower jaw, the location and position of the teeth, joints and paranasal sinuses. Implants, fillings, X-ray contrast material in canals of teeth and any dental structures are also visualized in the image.
What is the privilege of orthopantomogram?
– Getting a complete volumetric picture of all the elements of the teeth at once for 1 manipulation;
– Accurate diagnostics not only of the jaw-bone tissues, but also of the periodontium directly;
-The duration of the procedure lasts no more than 10s;
-The procedure is absolutely painless and it has no unpleasant consequences;
-The final picture can be seen immediately after the manipulation.
The shot should be made in the following cases:
-before placing dental implants;
-before the tooth extraction;
– when fighting periodontal and periodontitis disease;
-when soft tissues are inflamed;
-to evaluate the growth of teeth;
-before scheduled surgical intervention.
– to assess the condition of the tooth-jaw system and detection of any deviations.
