OPG (Orthopantomogram) and CEPH (Cephalogram) are types of dental x-rays. These are taken by a specialised x-ray machine.

An OPG produces a panoramic view of the jaw.

A CEPH x-ray is a diagnostic radiograph of facial structures, primarily taken for orthodontic treatment planning.

Dental x-rays are quick, painless, and expose the patient to a minimal amount of low-level radiation, whilst providing invaluable information to Dentists, Orthodontists and alike.
