3D X-rays (CBCT) available in our clinic for Dental Implants, Wisdom Teeth Extraction etc
An OPG demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted through the gum.
This can be particularly useful to check hard to see areas like wisdom teeth, or the development of a child’s jaw and teeth. It is also often used to check your jaw joint, the TMJ (temperomandibular joint), sometimes called the CMA (cranio-mandibular articulation), especially if you grind your teeth.
Some principal advantages of OPG:
Broad coverage of facial bones and teeth including the TMJ (temperomandibular joint)
Low patient radiation dose
Convenience of examination for the patient
Ability to be used in patients who are restricted in opening their mouth
Short time required for producing the image
Useful visual aid in patient education and case presentation
