A panorex is a imaging machine that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. It usually takes 5 seconds to fully image and is painless and non-invasive. You will stand up next to a machine and once positioned properly, it will rotate around your entire head, taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, sinuses, jaw bone and TMJ.
The ability to view the full structure of your head as a whole is very informative. It allows us to detect dental conditions such as structural abnormalities, infections, cysts or asymmetry. It is also the standard x-ray used to image wisdom teeth.
