Panorex & 3D digital conebeam X-ray

In addition to standard digital intraoral radiographs the office also has a state of the art panorex and 3D digital conebeam x-ray machine.

The panorex allows us to visualize the entire jaw in a single radiograph, it is perfect for locating impacted wisdom teeth, as well as assessing the occlusion for a possible Orthodontic referral.

The 3D digital conebeam allows us to visualize a small area of the jaw in 3 dimensions.

Perfect for determining the depth as well as width of bone when deciding whether or not to go ahead with implant placement. The 3D radiograph can also be used to determine the number of canals a tooth has before doing endodontic treatment (root canal).
