The OP300 Orthopantomograph allows us to take 3-D panoramic X-rays of your teeth and jaws. This technology provides us with unique digital images that allow us to see any part of your mouth and jawbones from any camera angle.
The OP300 uses an advanced digital X-ray to take images. This X-ray uses less energy than a traditional film-based X-ray, which means less exposure to radiation for you. The OP300 is so accurate it can be used to take a scan of a very small area of your jaw, reducing your exposure to radiation even more.
Because the OP300 scanner allow us take images of your mouth and surrounding areas from any angle, it lets us inspect your teeth, mouth, jawbones and tissues for things that may be hidden from a regular X-ray. For example, the OP300 can be used to detect cracks in your teeth that might be at an angle that a regular X-ray can’t detect. Or it can be used to detect infections or tissue damage that might be undetectable with a regular X-ray.
The OP300 can also develop a 3-D model of your mouth and jaws. This allows us to do things like view how children’s adult teeth are growing beneath their baby teeth, search your jawbone for the ideal spot to place a dental implant or diagnose factors causing TMJ syndrome.
The OP300 is just one of the many advanced technologies we use at Lawen Dentistry to assist in accurate diagnosis and treatment of your dental health.
