The OPG is a full mouth x ray machine which enables the dentists at Beaconsfield Dental to view dental problems, especially impacted (buried) wisdom teeth.
It allows visualisation of all the teeth and jaws to get an overview of the entire mouth. This is particularly important before removal of wisdom teeth (third molars) to prevent damage to important structures in the jaws and mouth.
Our OPG is digital which makes the procedure quick, with a low radiation dose. Having an OPG machine onsite is convenient for our patients as it gives an immediate diagnosis.
