Dental panoramic radiography - Definition


Definition


Dental panoramic radiography, or orthopantomogram, is a very large-scale x-ray, allowing for a view of both rows of teeth, as well as the mandible or lower jaw bone, and the maxilla or upper jaw bone. Many other structures of the facial skeleton are also visible with this x-ray. Dental panoramic radiography enables the detection of many lesions or other damage of the facial skeleton, such as tooth disease, for example, but also jaw fractures, cancerous tumors, and more.
