The digitized digital X-ray

Why is a dental panoramic X-ray necessary?

The dental panoramic X-ray, also known as an orthopantomogram, is an X-ray that can reveal dental and oral issues that a clinical examination alone cannot detect. It allows for the diagnosis of conditions such as dental abscesses, early-stage cavities, cysts, tumors, jaw infections, supernumerary teeth, and agenesis. Additionally, it provides a comprehensive view of the teeth, gums, and jaws, which is essential for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning for procedures like implants or dentures.

In Europe, a prescription is generally not required as the radiologist is considered the prescriber of the radiological procedure.

The standard european rate for a dental panoramic X-ray is €30 to €50, but some practitioners may charge additional fees, which could bring the cost higher. Your health insurance will usually cover totally or at least partially this cost.

Digitizing your dental X-ray to send it to us

We recommend asking for the digital version of your dental X-ray from the radiology clinic to simplify the sending process. The imaging center are accustomed to this request and can provide your X-rays in digital form, either on a CD or via email.
