An orthopantomogram or OPG photo is an X-ray of the entire jaw. OPG photos are used for braces treatments, wisdom teeth extraction, but also in cases where several weak spots are found in the teeth during the check-up.
How does it work?
Smile Place has its own OPG X-ray machine. An OPG photo can be taken during the appointment if the dentist deems it necessary. NOTE: In some cases, an authorization must first be requested from the insurance company to be covered by the reimbursement. It can take up to 10 working days to obtain the authorization.
What does it cost?
The rates in oral care are determined nationally by the Dutch Healthcare Authority. Making an OPG photo (not braces treatments) costs € 69.97 (code X21).
