Panoramic Digital X-Rays
At Jonathan C. Wang, DDS, Inc., we use some of the most advanced technologies and equipment in dentistry to provide the highest quality of care for our patients. Panoramic x-rays are among the technologies we use frequently to identify and treat dental issues effectively.
What Is a Panoramic X-Ray?
A panoramic x-ray is a two-dimensional image that offers a view of a patient’s oral cavity and some surrounding structures. This type of x-ray shows an image of the patient’s teeth, jawbones, sinuses, temporomandibular joint, and other surrounding details. At Jonathan C. Wang, DDS Inc., Dr. Wang uses panoramic x-rays to identify dental problems early on so that proper treatment can be provided early.
What Are Panoramic X-Rays Used For?
Dr. Wang typically recommends panoramic x-rays since it is a vital screening tool in identifying dental problems such as impacted wisdom teeth, temporomandibular joint issues, and pathologies such as cysts or tumors.
