When you visit our dental office, we work hard to keep your smile in the best possible health. We use several types of high-tech dental tools to provide you with the highest level of dental care. One of the tools we use is digital panoramic radiography. Panoramic X-rays are very useful in helping our dentist and dental team understand your smile as a whole. The digital panoramic radiograph includes all of your teeth, jawbone, and the surrounding structures; in contrast, a regular bitewing X-ray only includes an image of a few teeth and a small portion of the jawbone. Dr. Wendy Britt may use a digital panoramic X-ray in Laurinburg, North Carolina, to aid in:
• Evaluating the extent of dental and facial trauma
• Planning certain types of treatment, such as dental implants
• Detecting impacted wisdom teeth
• Assessing the development of your child’s smile and examining any abnormalities
Digital panoramic X-rays allow us to evaluate your smile as a comprehensive whole. Because we use a digital radiography system, we can easily adjust the images, making them larger and increasing the contrast to allow for better viewing and more accurate diagnoses. For more information on digital panoramic radiography and its benefits, please call or visit our dental practice soon. We are eager to speak with you!
