Is the radiation of the x-rays high?
With the development of technology, the radiation used by X-ray machines is also gradually decreasing. It is equivalent to the natural radiation received within 3 days in a sunny place, so even though it is a rather low dose, we reduce this amount even further using special lead aprons in our hospital.
When is a dental panoramic x-ray necessary?
Panoramic films are necessary for the detection of cysts in the jaws, inflammations in the root of the teeth, the level of the supporting bone, cavities between teeth.
