Patient radiation:

The advantages of panoramic radiography include considerable time savings for the office staff and the reduction of the patient’s exposure to radiation as compared to a full mouth periapical series.  A full survey using Intraoral periapical technique requires 14 to 18 separate exposures, involving the cooperation of the patient for a period of twenty to thirty minutes.  A panoramic radiograph, including patient positioning, takes less than five minutes to accomplish (during which time the patient is essentially passive).  The panoramic radiograph, coupled with an additional 5-7 minutes for bitewings, represents a 50% time savings.  “total radiation exposure to the patient is on the order of one-fifth to one-sixth of the radiation exposure required by a full intra-oral series.”

Life Smile Dental Center is excited to be able to offer our patients the very latest in dental radiographic technology!
