Taking a Panoramic X-Ray at the Dentist Office

So, we are going to take a pano today and I’m going to need you to remove your earrings. Ok. I’ll hold onto them. Ok. The reason why we’re going to do a pano is because it helps us see any abnormalities in the jaw area, wisdom teeth, and anything that we wouldn’t be able to see with other x-rays. Ok? Okay. So you’re going to rest you chin right here and bite on this stick. Let me put that down a little bit. Perfect! Stand straight and tall. I’m going to clear your head. Alright! I want you to put your tongue on the roof of your mouth like you’re sucking on a straw Press your lips and be very still. Alright. Kristin. How was it? Good. Let me undo it, and step back for us. Perfect! Thank you so much. Thank you!
