A Panoramex image is an X-ray that depicts a panoramic view of your mouth, from one side to the other. This image can help the dentist understand the relationship between your teeth, jaws, and occlusion (bite, or how your top and bottom teeth fit together). When planning extensive restorative or cosmetic dentistry cases, a Panoramex may be necessary in addition to intraoral photos and digital X-rays.
