For accurate diagnosis of dental problems we require radiographs, which due to advances in digital technology are extremely accurate and give us precise insight into anatomical structures.
We use the latest technology in our dental practice: an RVG device, a panoramic 2-dimension X-ray and 3-dimension CBCT images.
RVG – radiovisiography
The advantages of NEW TECHNOLOGIES are significantly less radiation, high quality images and less time to obtain images.
The latest technology enables us to view and analyse images of each tooth on a computer screen during a dental visit thus allowing us to improve the quality of treatment. Dentists can immediately view the root and surrounding structures and ascertain whether there is any inflammation. This way, it is possible to continue to work and not require the patient to come on for another appointment.
Digital recordings are stored in a computer and can be quickly accessed and sent via digital mail as necessary.
Panoramic x-ray is commonly used in dentistry. It shows a general overview of all teeth and surrounding structures. It is used in the diagnosis for any dental issues, periodontal conditions, bone structures, state of the sinus cavity and the temporomandibular joint.
Today x-ray images are done in digital form, which makes the procedure easier and quicker, reduces radiation and it enables us to send them by e-mail.
BRING YOUR OLD x-rays at THE FIRST appointment BECAUSE they can be helpful in the diagnosis and planning of future treatments.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography is useful in assessing the potential risk of surgical procedures, as well as determining and solving any possible complications.
(CBCT) technologya 3-Dimage of the jaw. Soft tissue, bone structure, muscles, teeth and blood vessels are distinctly defined by these images.
When planning dental treatments it is important to gain an insight into the following:
– Anatomy of the teeth and surrounding structures (bones, soft tissues and sinuses).
– Position of critical anatomical structures (nerves, residual roots and implants)
CBCT has much lower radiation dose compared to a conventional CT.
CBCT images significantly facilitate the work in the following areas of dental medicine:
– Oral surgery (extraction of roots and impacted teeth)
– Implantology (relations to nerves, sinuses and alveolar ridge bone volume)
– Orthodontics (cephalometric analysis, orthodontic implants)
– Root canal treatment (atypical anatomy of root canal)
– Periodontics (analysis of the level of bone and periodontal condition)
