  • OPG Explained

    An OPG is an X-ray which displays all the teeth, jaws and temperomandibular joints in a single image. It is often used in the planning of orthodontic work, a review of wisdom teeth or a general overview of the teeth and bone in that area.

  • Please advise us beforehand

    Please advise us if you are, or think you may be, pregnant.

  • Preparation

    Please bring your referral, Medicare and/or Pension Health Care Card and any previous imaging relating to the region being scanned.

    You may be required to remove jewellery and clothing that contain zips or metal objects, as these items can interfere with the X-ray quality.

  • What happens during the procedure

    Most OPGs are performed standing with your chin resting on a small shelf, biting gently on a sterile mouth piece to steady your head. There are handles either side for you to hold, ensuring you remain very still while your X-ray is taken.

  • How long does it take?

    Approx 15 minutes.

  • After Your Examination

    There are no restrictions after having an OPG.

  • Your images and report

    After your examination, you will be given a copy of the most pertinent images from your study. A report will be given to you with the images, or sent directly back to your referring doctor by fax or email. PRP will store digital copies of all studies on our secure database for comparison with any future examinations.

    Please bring any previous X-rays with you for comparison.

    It is important that you return to your doctor with your examination results. Whether they are normal or abnormal, your doctor needs to know promptly so that a management plan can be formulated.
