O.P.G. (Panoramic Dental X-ray) is First step of investigation for diagnosis of your Dental problem and key diagnostic tool for assessment/diagnosis/detection for disease of Teeth and Jaw Bone.
An Orthopantomogram (OPG) is an advanced type of Full Mouth Dental X-Ray.
An OPG is a panoramic or wide view X-ray, which displays all the Teeth of the upper and lower Jaw on a single film. It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the Teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted.
OPG X Ray produces a 2 dimensional view of the maxilla and mandible (Upper and Lower Jaw Bone). A specialized x-ray machine is used to produce the images. During an OPG examination, part of the equipment will rotate around the patient’s head while they remain in a still, standing or sitting position.
