Dentistry today has advanced leaps and bounds over the last decade. An OPG ( Full mouth X-ray ) is considered to be a luxury to any private practice due to the high cost factor of the system. In line with our colleagues in the US and UK in which major and minor dental procedure warrant the use of a Panoramic X-ray machine, the International Dental Centre now has its own in house machine. Its an invaluable tool in proper diagnosis and treatment planning as a lot of pathology that shows on an OPG x-ray is not visible on a IOPA ( small X-ray ) and as such your case may not be treated properly. We encourage all patients going for major or minor Dental treatment to insist for an OPG X-ray with their Dentist. Ours being one of only 2 machines in North Goa we have an independent office that caters to OPG x-rays. So even if you choose to have your work done at another practice we will be happy to take an x-ray for you to help in your treatment process.

A panographic x-ray gives us a panoramic view of your mouth. It provides valuable information about:

The position of wisdom teeth, receding bone levels, which is a sign of periodontal disease               For Implant surgery
For jaw-joint problems
For sinus problems  , For Orthodontic Diagnosis

The Process of X-ray making

The x-ray film is positioned outside your mouth, and the x-ray head rotates around you. A lead apron protects the rest of your body while our technician takes x-rays of your mouth. Dental x-rays use high-speed film, so the amount of radiation exposure is very low. Panographic x-ray only adds about as much radiation as you'd get from 10 extra days of natural background radiation. Even if you've recently had other x-rays taken, a Panographic x-ray does not add to that exposure.

Panographic x-rays are comfortable and safe. They give our dentist information that he can't get from any other source.
