OPG can help dental professionals plan appropriate treatment for dental and oral health issues, such as orthodontic treatment, dental implants, or extractions.
An OPG (Orthopantomogram) is a diagnostic tool that is primarily used to evaluate the teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures. Here are some of the key functions of OPG:
Detecting dental issues: OPG can detect a wide range of dental issues, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and impacted teeth, which may not be visible during a routine dental exam.
Evaluating jawbone problems: OPG can evaluate the jawbone for problems such as fractures, tumors, cysts, and other abnormalities.
Diagnosing wisdom teeth issues: OPG can diagnose problems with wisdom teeth, such as impaction or infection, which may require extraction.
Planning dental treatment: OPG can help dental professionals plan appropriate treatment for dental and oral health issues, such as orthodontic treatment, dental implants, or extractions.
Monitoring oral health: OPG can be used to monitor the progression of dental and oral health issues over time, helping dental professionals adjust treatment as needed.
Overall, OPG is a valuable diagnostic tool that helps dental professionals evaluate and treat a wide range of dental and oral health issues.
