Panoramic X-Rays

Also known as Panorex® or orthopantomograms, panoramic X-rays provide a clear image of your sinus areas, nasal areas, and other oral and facial structures that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Instead of placing film inside your mouth, Dr. Sullivan and our team use a mechanism that rotates around your head to reveal potential too decay, fractures, and bone loss. To learn more about why we use panoramic X-rays in Gilbert, Arizona, you are welcome to contact Artistry in Dentistry and schedule an appointment with our dentist.

In order to provide you with the best possible dental care, it is essential that our dentist is able to accurately evaluate and diagnose your oral health. One of the state-of-the-art tools we use to do that is panoramic X-rays. While standard X-rays, called bitewing X-rays, provide us with a view of a few teeth and the supporting bone structure, panoramic X-rays allow us to view the full upper and lower dental arches – including all of the teeth, upper and lower jawbones, and the surrounding facial structures. Using panoramic X-rays, our dentist is able to:

  • Assess the need for orthodontics and evaluate the progress of treatment
  • Diagnose impacted wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth
  • Analyze the development of periodontal disease
  • Evaluate the TMJ (jaw joint) and diagnose a TMJ disorder
  • Detect oral cancer
  • Plan dental implant placement
  • Diagnose cavities (tooth decay) and other dental problems
  • Evaluate the extent of dental and/or facial trauma
  • Detect abscesses, cysts, and tumors

Using the panoramic X-ray machine is fast and comfortable. The machine simply rotates around your head and provides our dentist with high-definition, nearly instantaneous images that we can then use to evaluate your oral health. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about panoramic X-rays.
