A panoramic or pan is an x-ray that shows all of your teeth, jaw, and TMJ (jaw joint) along with both hard and soft tissue. A digital pan will be recommended based on individual need.
A panoramic x-ray can show us:
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Abscesses
  • Oral cancer
  • TMJ (jaw) concerns
  • Gum diseases and bone loss
  • Hard and soft tissue
  • Eruption of teeth (when they are coming in)
  • Impaction of teeth (if they are “stuck”and not coming in)
Benefits of Digital Pan
  • Better overview of the whole mouth
  • Comfort to the patient
  • Cost, it is less expensive then taking a single x-ray of every tooth
  • More comprehensive exams
  • Early detection
  • Less radiation (compared to taking multiple x-rays)

We are excited about offering this great diagnostic tool continently to our patients. Please feel free to speak to our staff about having a digital pan if you have any questions.
