This technique is used for producing a single tomographic image of the facial structures that includes both the maxillary and mandibular dental arches & their supporting structures.

Indications of a Panoramic Radiograph:

  • Patients who do not tolerate intraoral procedures well (substitute)
  • Overall screening of jaws & associated structures
  • Evaluation of trauma
  • Location of third molars
  • Assist & assess the patient during orthodontic treatment.
  • Extensive diseases
  • Known/ suspected large lesions
  • Evaluate tooth development in children (Mixed dentition)
  • Retained teeth/ root tips
  • Assess for any underlying bone disease before constructing complete/ partial denture
  • Developmental anomalies
  • Post – operative implant assessment.

Principal advantages of panoramic image include the following:

  • Broad coverage of the facial bones and teeth
  • Assessment of presence and position of unerupted teeth in orthodontic treatment
  • Demonstrates periodontal disease in a generalized way
  • Low patient radiation dose
  • Convenience of the examination for the patient
  • Ability to be used in patients unable to open their mouths & gagging
  • Short time to make panoramic image: 5minutes
  • Ease of understandability for the patient
