X-rays taken with the Digital Panorex X-ray dental machine differ from other digital X-rays in that they take a “panoramic” picture of the teeth. That is, the machine makes an entire half-circle motion to capture an image of the entire oral cavity. Like digital X-rays, digital Panorex X-rays reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to with standard X-rays by up to 90 percent. Digital Panorex X-rays are only necessary on initial visits and every few years thereafter.
