Digital Orthopantomograph


An OPG is an X-ray with a panoramic or wide view of the lower face, which shows all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single file. It also shows the number, position and growth of all teeth, including those which have not yet emerged or erupted. It is different from the small close-up radiograph which dentists take for individual teeth. An OPG may also reveal problems with the jaw bone and the joint connecting the latter to the head, called the temporomandibular joint articulation or ATM. An OPG can be requested in the I Smile center of Lago Patria for orthodontic treatment planning, for assessment of wisdom teeth or for a general view of the teeth and bone which supports them.
