Diagnostic Tests / Digital OPG

Today, three-dimensional imaging is offering the field of dentistry previously undreamed-of diagnostic and therapeutic options in the fields of surgery, prosthetics, orthodontics, and restorative dentistry.

An Orthopantomogram (OPG), also known as an "orthopantogram" or "panorex", is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. It shows a three-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear.

OPGs are used by Dentists to provide information on

  • Impacted wisdom teeth.
  • Periodontal bone loss.
  • Finding the source of dental pain.
  • Assessment for the placement of dental implants.
  • Orthodontic assessment.

The most common use is to determine the status of wisdom teeth.
