What is OPG
OPG stands for Ortho Pantomo Gram. This also is an x-ray test and is useful for giving a complete view of both jaws on a single film, in checking third molar / wisdom tooth, development of teeth in mixed dentition (upto 12 years), and for orthodontic cases.
How is it performed?
The entire procedure of OPG takes about 2-3 minutes. Earrings, nose rings and hair pins should be removed prior to the test. The patient is made to rest his chin on a chin rest with the head held stationery and the OPG is taken.
