Orthopantomogram (OPG)

Dental OPG

What is Orthopantomogram (OPG)?

A panoramic X-ray of the upper and lower jaws, including the teeth, is called an OPG. During the scan, the OPG unit is specifically designed to rotate around the patient’s head. An OPG can take about 20 seconds.

An OPG can be used to find

  • Fractures
  • Dislocated jaw
  • Infection
  • Dentition (teeth)
    It can also be used to prepare surgical procedures.
