Panoramic radiography is a technique to yield face structure photo including bone of

maxilla, mandible and supporting structures like maxilla antrum, nasal fossa, TMJ,
procesus styloideus, and os. hyoid. Panoramic radiography is also used to evaluate
asymmetrical of face. Growth and development of head is similar to the growth and
development of body in general. The skeletal morphology can be disturbed by internal
disorder of TMJ and degenerative joint disease as short ramus, a sharp angle of mandible,
and also cranial base that cause asymmetrical face. By taking accurate panoramic
radiography, the mandible asymmetrical can be measured.
