A Panorex is an x-ray commonly obtained to visualize the teeth and jaws. A Panorex film allows radiographic analysis of the entire area involving the lower face, jaws, and teeth. Depending on the area of interest, a panorex may be indicated to further evaluate your condition.

Areas of interest may include:

• Position of impacted teeth or tooth roots

• Position of nerves within the jaw

• Evaluation of bone density and bone loss

• Evaluation of pathology

• Evaluation of fractures

• Position of the maxillary sinus cavity
