Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic X-Rays

There may be times when our dentists may want to take X-rays of your entire smile. For these times, we use panoramic X-rays in Warwick, New York, which can be a valuable tool for Dr. Syed Masihuddin or Dr. Pankaj Puri to locate problems and create your personalized treatment plan. If you would like to schedule your visit and learn how this technology can benefit your smile, call Merchant Square Dental at 845-986-1732 today.

In order to provide you with the best possible care, it is essential for our dentists to accurately evaluate and diagnose your oral health. One of the state-of-the-art tools we use to do that is panoramic X-rays. While standard X-rays, called bitewing X-rays, provide us with a view of a few teeth and the supporting bone structure, panoramic X-rays allow us to view the full upper and lower dental arches — including all of the teeth, the upper and lower jawbones, and the surrounding facial structures. Using panoramic X-rays, our oral health professionals can:

  • Assess the need for orthodontics and evaluate the progress of treatment
  • Diagnose impacted wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth
  • Analyze the development of periodontal disease
  • Evaluate the TMJ (jaw joint) and diagnose a TMJ disorder
  • Detect oral cancer
  • Plan dental implant placement
  • Diagnose cavities (tooth decay) and other dental problems
  • Evaluate the extent of dental or facial trauma
  • Detect abscesses, cysts and tumors

Using the panoramic X-ray machine is fast and comfortable. The machine simply rotates around your head and provides our dentists with high-definition, nearly instantaneous images that we can then use to evaluate your oral health. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about panoramic X-rays.

Panoramic X-rays provide orthodontists with valuable information about the position of the teeth, the development of permanent teeth, and the relationship between the jaws. This information helps orthodontists develop personalized treatment plans for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Panoramic X-rays provide a panoramic view of the entire oral cavity in a single image, whereas traditional dental X-rays focus on individual teeth or specific areas of the mouth. Panoramic X-rays are useful for assessing overall dental health and identifying issues such as impacted teeth or jaw abnormalities.
