Oral Diagnosis and Radiology
Panoramic X-Ray is a radiography providing that all teeth and jaws are screened on a single film. It ensures that treatment planning is made faster and in a more completely manner. It is required to detect formations such as cyst, cavity, and tumor which cannot be seen by eye in jaws and teeth.
It is smaller films in which a problem in a single tooth is displayed in a more detailed way.
They are the films in which relationship of jaw and surrounding tissues with important structures (nerve, vein, nasal cavities) are screened in 3 dimensions especially before implant application.
Dentist assesses intraoral examinations and x-rays and accordingly, makes diagnosis and draws up a therapy plan. X-rays detect cavities, infections, impacted teeth, cysts etc. which cannot be seen by naked eye of dentist.
