OPG - Orthooral Panoramic X-ray

Dental X-ray in Oslo

OPG is a type of X-ray that provides a panoramic image of your teeth. This type of X-ray is particularly useful for diagnosing certain dental problems and planning dental treatments. Our team of experienced dentists use OPG to provide accurate and effective treatment plans.


Why do I need an OPG?

An OPG provides a comprehensive overview of your teeth and can help diagnose dental problems that might otherwise go unnoticed. This type of X-ray can also reveal problems with your jawbone and sinuses that can affect your dental health. Our team of experienced dentists will use the results of the OPG to develop an effective and customized treatment plan for you.

How does OPG work?

During an OPG treatment, you will be asked to place your head in a special machine that takes a panoramic image of your teeth. It is completely painless and usually only takes a few minutes to complete. After the picture is taken, our dentists will analyze it and use it to diagnose any dental problems you may have.

Is OPG safe?

Yes, OPG is a safe and reliable way to diagnose dental problems. The x-rays used are very low dose and our modern OPG machine is designed to minimize your exposure. Our team of experienced dentists will ensure that you are comfortable and well looked after throughout the process.

When should you have an OPG X-ray?

We recommend that you take an OPG X-ray once a year to detect any problems early and avoid major treatments in the future. In addition, we can recommend an OPG X-ray if you experience toothache, have lost a tooth or have problems with your gums. OPG X-rays can also be useful for planning dental treatments such as dental implants or braces.

Dental Health Tips

  • Brush your teeth properly: Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day for at least two minutes each time. Use a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen tooth enamel.
  • Clean between the teeth: Use dental floss or interdental brushes daily to remove plaque and food debris that the brush cannot reach.
  • Visit the dentist regularly: Go to the dentist at least twice a year for routine check-ups and professional teeth cleaning.
  • Eat a healthy diet: Reduce your intake of sugary foods and drinks that can lead to tooth decay. Eat more fruits, vegetables and calcium-rich foods to maintain strong teeth.
  • Avoid tobacco products: Smoking and sniffing can cause dental problems and gum disease. Try to stop or reduce the use of these products for better dental health.
  • Protect your teeth during activities: Use a mouth guard during sports activities or when you perform activities with a risk of tooth damage.
  • Care for dentures: If you have dentures, be sure to clean them regularly and store them safely to avoid damage and infection.
