Correct diagnosis is a basis of effective treatment. Radiographic diagnostics allows to find the source of discomfort and correctly perform a dental procedure.
We have our own, fully-equipped radiology lab. In Dental Fraternity, you can take many different types of diagnostic images. Radiographic diagnosis is a non-invasive imagery examination which allows to find irregularities in individual teeth, mandibular, maxillary, and maxillofacial bone tissues.
- Take a radiograph of one tooth
- Take a panoramic radiograph
- Perform a cephalometric (a tele-lateral imagery)
- Perform tomography
– Maxillofacial tomography
– Mandible or maxilla tomography
– Mandible or maxilla tomography – a segment
TOOTH RADIOGRAPH is the most popular tooth image. It is recommended in order to visualize a specific section of a tooth arch. This image can be taken at a selected angle in order to see the tooth from any chosen side.
PANORAMIC RADIOGRAPH shows the condition of all teeth with temporomandibular joints and maxillary sinuses in one image. It allows you to assess the condition of all teeth and their mutual position. This type of image is performed extraorally and is completely non-invasive.
CEPHALOMETRIC – TELE-LATERAL IMAGERY
Cephalometric image shows a lateral part of a skull. It includes the front, facial part of a skull with teeth. A cephalometric image shows bone structures, but also soft tissues (the contour of nose, mouth, etc.). It allows to visualize the structure of upper and lower teeth, as well as the face profile.
This examination is used to assess mandibular and maxillary alveolar processes or after maxillofacial injuries. Tomography allows for a more precise assessment of bone structures.
