Advanced Panoramic X-Ray

As part of the strategy to improve health services for the residents of the north, a state-of-the-art digital panoramic device, one of the most advanced in the world was purchased for Ziv's Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department.

Dr. Alejandro Roisentul, Head of the Department, says the new device, which is the last word in panoramic photography technology, provides the population of the region with a quick, convenient and comprehensive solution that does not require a prior panoramic x-ray from an external dental institute before surgery, dental implants or any other treatment.

The x-rays are of the highest quality available and with a very significant reduction in the ionizing radiation level compared to the previous generation devices. The digital photos can be sent by e-mail to the patient or to the dentist in the community for further follow-up and treatment, "says Dr. Roisentul.

Panoramic dental photographs reveal to the doctors the structure of the teeth and jaw, the oral cavity and the sinuses, and help identify and diagnose injuries and defects in the jaw joints, problems of dental teeth that require surgical intervention, tumors in the oral cavity and more. The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic equipment in the field and consists of experts with unprecedented experience in complex trauma injuries of the face, oral and maxillofacial surgery, facial reconstruction, dentistry and oral surgery for children and youth.
