What is OPG?
An OPG is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film. It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted. It is different from the small close up x-rays dentists take of individual teeth. An OPG may also reveal problems with the jawbone and the joint which connects the jawbone to the head, called the Temporomandibular joint or TMJ. An OPG may be requested for the planning of orthodontic treatment, for assessment of wisdom teeth or for a general overview of the teeth and the bone which supports the teeth.
What is CBCT?
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is one of the latest tool for imaging the craniofacial area that produces more realistic images that facilitate interpretation. This technology has revolutionized the practice of dental and maxillofacial imaging the world over.The main advantage of using CBCT is that it has 1/10th radiation exposure than the normal medical CT scan and xrays are generated with 0% error. It takes equal care for reduced patients exposure and reasonable low cost which assures great patients compliance.Furthermore it takes only 90 seconds for the complete exposure rather than the CT scan which involves sleeping in the scary tube for the entire process especially in claustrophobic patients.
