Panoramic view of your lower face.
An Orthopantomogram (OPG) is a panoramic dental x-ray that produces a 2D view of your lower face, teeth and jaws on a single film.
It is a type of dental x-ray that rotates around your head and only takes 15 to 20 seconds to complete. It demonstrates your lower and upper jawbone, as well as the number, position and growth of teeth, including those not yet surfaced or erupted.
An OPG may be requested for orthodontic planning, assessment of wisdom teeth, examination of the jawbone or for a general overview of your oral health.
