Oral Diagnosis and Radiology
Oral diagnosis examines the diseases, anomalies and developmental defects of the mouth, teeth, gums and surrounding tissues; it is the main discipline that investigates the diagnosis and treatment criteria.Dental radiology, on the other hand, helps to diagnose problems with teeth and jaw through X-rays. Caries, bone loss and problems in the root canal can be easily detected by dental radiography, which can not ne noticed during examination. In addition, x-rays assist dentists in orthodontic treatment and implant placement.
Digital Panoramic X-Ray And Dental Tomography
Panoramic x-ray is a kind of tomographic x-ray, in which all teeth and jaw bone are displayed together with less beam. It is used to show the parts of the teeth, bones and gums that are not visible in clinical examination. Using the digital system improves the image quality and significantly reduces the amount of radiation received by the person.
Dental tomography is vital in terms of diagnosing various dental diseases and planning detailed treatment. The main difference with the conventional dental x-ray is that a volumetric tomography can give us a 3D image. This means three-dimensional imaging, including length, width and depth, and we can see all the teeth, around the jawbone, and even the airway.
