A Panorex is a very impressive piece of imaging machinery in that it can identify many issues and structures that a typical X-ray cannot. Initially, you will sit in a chair with your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned in the machine, it will rotate around your entire head, taking a 360-degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses, and bones.
The ability to view the entire structure of your head is very informative to the dentist. It will allow us to see potential problems and ensure that everything functions as it should. The Panorex can view specific structural problems, infections, or asymmetry, among many others.
