Our State Of The Art Equipment

At Lasting Impressions, our state-of-the-art dental equipment includes digital x-rays, a panoramic x-ray machine and a custom-designed sterilization area.

Principal Advantage of Panoramic Images:

The panoramic x-ray used by Lasting Impressions supplies information about the teeth, upper and lower jawbone, sinuses, and other hard and soft tissues of the head and neck.

Radiographs, or dental x-rays, are an important tool for your dentist. The three most common types of dental x-rays are the bitewing, periapical, and panoramic x-rays.

Bitewing x-rays are taken during an initial or routine dental visit and are useful for revealing cavities between the teeth. Periapical x-rays show the entire tooth, including the roots, as well as the bone surrounding them. These x-rays are useful in helping to diagnose abscesses in teeth as well as periodontal (gum) disease.

The third type of x-ray, the panoramic x-ray, gives a broad overview of the entire mouth. One advantage of the panoramic x-ray is its ease of use. Unlike other x-rays where the film is placed inside the patient’s mouth, the panoramic film is contained in a machine that moves around the patient’s head. Some people may be familiar with the panoramic x-ray because it is usually taken when the wisdom teeth (third molars) are being evaluated. The x-ray will also reveal deep cavities and gum disease.

The panoramic x-ray has many other applications, including evaluating patients with past or present TMJ (jaw joint) problems, those who require full or partial removable dentures, dental implants, braces, are at risk or suspected of having oral cancer or other tumors of the jaw, have impacted teeth (especially wisdom teeth), have had any recent trauma to the face or teeth (i.e., can help identify a fractured jaw), and for those who cannot tolerate other types of films.

The panoramic x-ray is an excellent dental tool for the following reasons:

  • Broad coverage of facial bones and teeth.
  • Low patient radiation dose.
  • Convenience of examination for the patient (films are not placed in the mouth).
  • For use in patients who cannot open the mouth or when the opening is restricted.
  • Short time required for making the image.
  • Patient’s understandability of panoramic films (making them a useful visual aid).
  • Easy to store compared to the large set of intra oral x-rays which are typically used.
