In my school do we start to take panormics in kids after 6 years of age. We take them as always, only if there is a clinical indication to prescribe them.....if we think that we cannot get some needed information from a less harmful method. We repeat them on same conditions, if we need addtional and new informaton about the childs dental need. So it's very indivdual how often we take them.
In patients without symptoms do we never take them, if a clinical examination is without any signs of disease.

Whereas the incidence of bone lesions, cysts and tumors in the jaws, in your countries there is some protocol/guide of the Department of Health that suggests a panoramic radiography for no symptomatic patients? If yes, what age and how often?
Someone indicate some literature on this subject.
I've been reading (I do not remember the reference) that from 07-yo is indicated the first panoramic radiography, if having no indication before.
Thank you in advance.
