OPG Xray

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 important to bring all previous imaging relating to the region being imaged. There is no other preparation required for OPG. The radiographer may ask you to remove any metal objects such as necklaces and earrings that may interfere with the scan.
