OPG stands for Orthopantomogram. It is a special method for obtaining radiographs of the teeth-bearing jaws, both upper and lower. An OPG is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw in a single film. It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted.
