Panorex: An extraoral radiograph can be taken of her entire upper and lower jaws, teeth, and sinuses, all without her opening her mouth. If her dentist does not have the correct equipment, then she should be referred to an oral surgeon's office. No pain does not mean no problem. Please make an appointment.
