Digital Panorex

The digital panoramic x-ray machine (Panorex) offers patients a quick and painless way to receive a dental x-ray that shows all the patient’s teeth and a complete view of the patient’s upper and lower jaws in a single picture. All the patient has to do is stand or sit in a single position for 10 seconds as the cone of the panorex machine circles the patient’s head. Dr. Peterson will then discuss with the patient what he sees on the x-ray so that he can best treat the patient.
