OPG (Orthopantomogram)

The process of taking multiple x-ray photographs of the mouth area to produce a single image for diagnoses is called OPG dental (Orthopantomogram). The panoramic image is produced by means of the equipment moving around the patient, typically covering 180-200 degrees in rotation. OPG dental images may be digital or film type, though dental professionals increasingly prefer digital format for its flexibility, lower cost and higher resolution which has caught up in terms of quality with conventional film. The key advantage today of using digital imaging is that it permits greater latitude: there is a lower error rate meaning fewer repeat scans.

OPG dental images display all teeth in a single frame, facilitating wider diagnoses of the jaw, teeth and soft tissue for a more robust diagnoses. Typical functions include: examination of impacted teeth, locating potential causes of dental pain, diagnoses concerning the bone structure of the temporomandibular joint or the entire jaw, and examining the pattern of both non-surfaced and surfaced teeth in adults and children. Fractures to bone and teeth are also conditions that a dental professional may be looking for when ordering an OPG dental scan for his or her patient.
