After conducting the comprehensive exam, our dentist takes an X-ray of your mouth, which will give a clear picture of the condition of your teeth and jaw. These scans are taken to better analyze oral disruptions, diseases, and cavities. The panoramic radiographs are the most common types of dental X-rays as they provide our dentist a much detailed view of the teeth and jaw. Our dentist is able to spot any impacted teeth or jaw fractures easily with the panoramic X-ray.
