What to expect during Panoramic X-Ray at Summerville Dental
Panoramic X-ray, otherwise known as panoramic radiography, is a two-dimensional dental x-ray examination that captures the entire dental structure, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, surrounding bones, and tissues, in a single picture.
When you visit us for a panoramic X-ray, our dental professional will ask you to sit in the center of the X-ray machine. Then, they will place a piece of plastic inside your mouth and ask you to bite down on it. Next, they will take multiple pictures from different angles to accurately diagnose your condition.
What to Expect During Cone Beam Scan at Summerville Dental
When you visit us for a CBCT scan, you will be asked to sit comfortably and keep your head still while an x-ray arm rotates around your head. Our dental expert may also ask you to place your head against the machine or use stabilizers in or around your ear to keep your head still. Once the arm scans the dental structure, you can wait till the results are printed.
Regardless of which procedure you want, rest assured that our staff will pay special attention to you and make you feel comfortable throughout your procedure.
