Digital Panoramic & Cephalometric Xray
Panoramic radiography, also called panoramic x-ray, is a two-dimensional (2-D) dental x-ray examination that captures the entire mouth in a single image, including the teeth, upper and lower jaw, surrounding structures and tissues. The jaw is a curved structure similar to that of a horseshoe.
A cephalometric x-ray, which is also sometimes referred to simply as a ceph, is a diagnostic radiograph used primarily for orthodontic treatment planning. A cephalometric x-ray is taken during the orthodontic records appointment.
