A panorex is an impressive piece of imaging machinery that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray cannot. Initially, you will sit in a chair with your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned, the machine will rotate around your head taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses and bones.
The ability to view the full structure of your head as a whole is very informative to the dentist. It allows us to see any potential problems and make sure that everything is functioning as it should. The panorex is capable of viewing specific types of structural problems, infections or asymmetry and many others.
