A panoramic X-ray shows all your teeth in addition to your full upper and lower jaw. It’s a screening X-ray that displays an image of the entire mouth using only very small amounts of radiation. A panoramic x-ray, or panorex, will monitor the position of your teeth as you grow, for example, any supernumerary (extra) teeth, or missing permantent (adult) teeth that may be missing, or not developing properly. This x-ray will also show the development and placement of wisdom teeth. Additionally, this x-ray checks the jaw for any abnormalities in the jaw joint, or any cysts or growths that may be developing and are yet undetected.
When Doctor Hoe was a child in Thompson, Manitoba, his father Bill—who was, of course, a dentist—did all his dental work for him. He says, “When I was a kid, I had no idea that my dad was giving me a needle—I thought that he made my lip go numb just by wiggling my lip. Needless to say, I made sure that dad showed me how to give injections after I got into dental school”. Today, Dr. Hoe is known amongst his patients for these injections.
We use a topical anesthetic to make your mouth go numb before you receive any injections. Many times, patients don’t even feel the freezing after the topical anesthetic is applied If you are nervous with injections, find sitting in a dental chair uncomfortable, or are fearful of treatment in general, Dr. Hoe also provides sedation dentistry for his patients, making visits to the office much more relaxed and comfortable.
