Owandy Panoramic Standard Chin Support
I-MAX is equipped with different types of supports: a standard support fitted with a special removable appendix for edentulous patients, a lower one for SINUS exams and a third one TMJ exams.
The standard chin support must be used, in panoramic mode, with all patients who can ensure a tight grip on the centring bite.
The appendix for edentulous patients must be applied only for patients who cannot ensure a tight grip on the bite or are not co-operating and might move during the exam.
For SINUS exams, there is special support; being in a lower position, this ensures a better centring of the area concerned in the rays field.
For TMJ exams, a specific positioner is included, allowing the patient to open and close the mouth without touching any positioner with the chin.
