Digital panoramic radiographs are used by our skilled dentist and dental team at Murray Dental Care to view the mouth and surrounding structures as a comprehensive whole. Panoramic X-rays provide Dr. Murray and her dental team with an image of the teeth, both jaws, and surrounding areas. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays; the full-mouth (panoramic) X-ray uses only as much radiation of 2 ½ small X-rays. Digital panoramic radiographs help Dr. Murray efficiently and accurately identify:
- Bone loss
- Tooth decay between the teeth
- Infection in the tooth nerve
- Cysts and abscesses
- Developmental anomalies
- Dental injury
Digital panoramic X-rays also help us to more effectively plan dental treatments, including dental implants. We invite you to call or visit our Cupertino, California dental office today to learn more about the advantages and uses of digital panoramic radiographs. We look forward to hearing from you!
