Extraoral X-Ray Imaging Devices

In 2019, the Extraoral X-Ray imaging market saw over 65M procedures being performed, accounting for over 6% of procedures within the Dental X-ray Imaging Market.

Extraoral X-ray units are used in most dental offices to diagnose and monitor the health and development of a patient’s jaw and skull. Dentists use the technology to gain a broader perspective of the development of a patient’s mouth by examining the growth and health patterns of a patient’s bone structures, such as the jaw and teeth. 

A panoramic X-ray system displays the bone structure of the entire mouth on a single X-ray image. These systems consist of a straight arm that holds the X-ray generator on the back end and an image capture screen, which holds the film, PSP plate or sensor, at the front end. The mechanism rotates around the patient’s head, taking one seamless image, and providing a full view of the entire structure of a patient’s mouth. A panoramic X-ray is typically an alternative to taking a full-mouth series of a patient’s mouth using intraoral X-rays and can be performed much faster with less radiation exposure.

The main target audience for extraoral dental imaging includes orthodontists, prosthodontists, and oral surgeons. As dental offices continue to consolidate and expand in size, this type of imaging will continue to be mostly conducted in a clinical setting versus hospitals or imaging centers.

Dental Imaging Market Forecast

The Extraoral X-Ray Imaging Market is expected to increase to over $107M by 2025, accounting for over 12% of the entire Dental Imaging Devices Market in the US. Within this segment, the biggest market driver is the increasing preference for scheduled panoramic images since more dentists are preferring to incorporate panoramic images into patients’ schedules.
