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.
