OPG XG 5
An Orthopantomogram (OPG) or Dental Panoramic Radiograph (DPR), also known as a “panorex”, is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. It shows a two-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear.
Normally, the person bites on a plastic spatula so that all the teeth, especially the crowns, can be viewed individually. The whole orthopantomogram process takes only about one minute. The patient’s actual radiation exposure time varies between 5.5 and 22 seconds for the machine’s excursion around the skull.
The result is an image showing sharply the section along the mandible arch, and blurred elsewhere. For example, the more radio-opaque anatomical region, the cervical vertebrae (neck), shows as a wide and blurred vertical pillar overlapping the front teeth. The path where the anatomical elements are recorded sharply is called “focal path”.
images produced in an OPG unit
– Centralised control via “Multipad”
– Optional remote control
– Spinal column compensation via automatic kV increase
– CCD sensor technology with high-speed interface, 27 µm pixel size and image acquisition with 16-bit technology, 100Mbit ethernet data transmission
– State-of-the-art data technology via integrated power PC
– Combination of Pan/Ceph sensors
– SIDEXIS XG imaging processing software
– Suitable for patients in wheelchairs
Standard panoramic programs
– Standard orthoradial ful dentition (P1)
– Standard orthoradial left (P1L)
– Standard orthoradial right (P1R)
– With constant 1.25 magnification (P1C)
Pediatric panoramic program (P10)
Lateral temporomandibular program (TMJ)
– With closed and open occlusion (TM1)
Sinus program (S1)
– Paranasal sinuses
Transversal multi-slice posterior teeth Program (MS1)
– Precise, immediate positioning of the anterior teeth in the sharply focused image layer without using an imprecise canine light localizer and
– effective and comfortable 3-point fixation to prevent patient movements during the exposure.
This provides the basis for good image quality.er age group, it has been observed around 30-35% children are having mal – aligned or irregularly erupted permanent teeth. Various treatments like removable and fixed appliances are available in correcting the mal-occlusion of the younger age group. The advanced specialty is also able to reach the age group up to 30-35 years.
Department of Oral Surgery: – This department deals with all the surgical treatments like routine extractions, impacted tooth extraction, minor and major surgeries like jaw fractures, cyst enucleation, surgery for benign and malignant tumors. Present day Oral Surgeon is also operating on Prognathysm (protruded jaw), Agnathysm (retruded jaw) and improving the look of the patients.
