In order to perform dental manipulations effectively, especially when planning complex procedures, it is required to have a full panoramic picture of the dentofacial system. It is achieved through the dental panoramic x-ray imaging that detects the data about obvious and latent issues of the oral cavity, which the dentist may need. The dental panoramic x-ray imaging is the method of dental diagnosis, when through the panoramic X-ray imaging, the specialist obtains the image of dentofacial system. The specialists of Oxford Medical have the necessary equipment and skills for diagnosing, prevention and treatment of the oral cavity diseases.

The procedure is performed in the X-ray room on the special equipment – panoramic X-ray machine. The radiologist adjusts necessary software settings, then positions the patient in the required direction and launches an X-ray machine. During the procedure, the rotating X-ray tube interacts with a sensor, reads the necessary information and, after processing with special software, displays a ready image on the screen.
The procedure does not cause any sensation of pain or discomfort.
