An X-ray is a commonly used imaging test used by doctors to see inside your body. Although this test makes use of radiation, the potential benefits outweigh the risks in most cases. X-rays can help diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions.

Dental X-ray (OPG)

  • Dental x-ray also known as orthopantomogram (OPG) is a very low dose x-ray which shows your entire mouth in one image. This x-ray is useful for dentists to get a detailed look at problems with individual teeth. As with other x-rays, no special preparation is required for this X-ray
  • An OPG is obtained with an x-ray machine specially designed just for your teeth. The technologist will ask you to stand with your head against the machine and will adjust its height to where it is comfortable for you.
  • You will be asked to gently bite on a peg which has grooves in it (above and below) for your front teeth. As the peg will be covered with a plastic disposable sleeve, there is no risk of infection. You will be asked to place your tongue touching the roof of your mouth. The machine moves around you slowly as the picture is taken.
  • It is essential that you keep as still as possible to get a good picture. Any movement can cause the image to blurry and will require a repeat x-ray.
