Panoramic X-rays Check More Than Your Teeth

Panoramic X-rays Check More Than Your Teeth

As a dental patient, you’re probably familiar with bitewing X-rays. This is where a piece of plastic is placed inside your mouth and you’re told to bite down on it. The plastic will be shifted around as multiple pictures are taken. Dentists do bitewing X-rays to identify any conditions that may be affecting different parts of your mouth.

Clearwater Dental Associates in Clearwater, FL, offers panoramic dental X-rays. These X-rays create a single image of the entire mouth: the upper and lower jaws, the temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, all the teeth, the nasal area, and sinuses.

In this video Dr. Matthew Burton explains what he is able to see using panoramic X-rays. To make an appointment, call 727-373-6628 or use our online form.
