Overview


What is X Ray OPG?

OPG stands for Orthopantomography. It is a special method for obtaining radiographs of the teeth-bearing jaws, both upper and lower.A regular X-ray machine cannot take detailed pictures of the jaw bones. An OPG machine is specially constructed so that it rotates around the jaw bones, thus giving us an extremely good idea about the structure of the jaw bones. OPG X-rays are usually asked for by the dentists, whether they are orthodontists, oral surgeons or prosthodontists/ implantologists. Because OPGs give a holistic view of the teeth and the adjacent bones, they are useful in a wide variety of conditions including infections, tumors, congenital abnormalities, pre-implant evaluation and trauma.
