Your Dental Tourism Dentist Wants a Panoramic X-ray. Say What? By Certified Doctors & Dentists Internationale'

PANORAMIC or tomographic x-rays are important when considering dental implants, 4 on1, oral surgery and other procedures involving the face, jaw, upper spine etc.
Dental patients considering dental travel as a solution to their dental healthcare crisis are often unaware of the importance of having a strange (well, new since 1985) x-ray referred to as a pano by dentists.

Panoramic radiographs (aka or tomographic x-ray) show an ear to ear 180 degree view of the patient’s jaws and all the teeth as well as much of the head and neck anatomy.

The machine used is different than the standard x-ray unit as the patient generally stands while the x-ray unit travels on a semi-circular track around the patient’s head.

A pano will show in greater detail impacted wisdom teeth, bone loss, often sources of dental pain in temporomandibular disorder (tmj), dental implant, oral trauma, upper spine and orthodontic assessments.

 The image quality is vastly superior to conventional film-based systems and of great importance to oral surgeons and maxillofacial specialists in assessing a patient’s suitability for conventional, mini dental implants, or other procedures. Cone 3D Technology is a new advancement to digital pano devices.

Get a pano from a specialist at home in advance or have one made in your dental vacation destination (assuming you are not going to Timbuktu). The costs will range from $150us to $300 in Seattle or Montreal vs. $30 to $60 with a dentist in Manila or Puerto Vallarta using the same panoramic x-ray units.  
  • It's not important whether a pano is made in New York, Los Angeles or Tijuana. It matters only for price and your convenience. 
What is important is having the assessment for your surgeries and the work performed by a board certified dentist.  With a pano to study, your specialist dentist can often recommend several options for you including conventional dental implants, mini implants, One-Day, 4 n 1, implant secured dentures, traditional dentures and more.
