Digital Radiology Imaging procedure using sophisticated imaging techniques that represents important technological advances in the field of Radiology, allowing image quality far superior comparied to a conventional radiology, becoming a stronger diagnostic tool. Prevents all acts involved in the processing of film radiographs in particular revelation and fixation with chemicals and consequent administrative facility to send both in the image file.
Panoramic x-ray is a x-ray on the complex of maxillo-mandibular. It is one of the most requested and disseminated radiographic techniques in all dental specialties, where viewing all dental elements and their anatomical structures are easy to understand for the dentist.
It is a very practical and useful test to complement the clinical examination in the diagnosis of decays or endodontic diseases and bone of the face. Through this examination, the dentist can show his teeth at once, including the unborn.
It is essential for the diagnosis of all lesions of the jaw bones. Through this examination, search for bone and roots resorption , cysts, tumors, inflammation, pós-acidentes fractures, decays, temporomandibular joint disorders (that cause pain in the ear, face, neck and head) and sinusitis.
The telerradiografic x-ray evaluates the relationships of the dental elements with the jaws in relation to the facial skeleton, and thus assess the occlusal plans and relevant changes to the orthopedic and orthodontic surgical intervention. cephalometric radiography is an x-ray of the skull standardized and reproducible. standardization is essential for the development of the cephalometry.
This type of Radiology is used in orthodontics and surgery studies:
Orthodontic and Facial Orthopedics
Initial diagnosis – confirmation of skeletal abnormalities and/or soft tissue;
Monitoring the progress of the treatment. For example, in assessing the need for anchoring and slope of incisors;
Assessment of the results achieved. For example, 1 or 2 months before completion of treatment, in order to ensure that the objectives of these have been achieved and to allow the planning of stabilization.
The periapical details allow the viewing of one or more teeth, the dental anatomy and show the structures involving the teeth by means of a two-dimensional image. This x-ray shows with setting the crown and root of the tooth and the joint space, alveolar bone and other structures. Thus it can identify poorly positioned teeth or anatomical changes, as well as discover the history of dental patient treatments.
With the periapical radiography we can analyze:
Viewing of fillings, root canal treatments and dental implants.
Evaluation of crowns, roots and alveolar bone;
Diagnosis of bone loss, tooth decay, salivary calculi, cystic and neoplastic lesions;
Identification of stranger bodies;
Analysis of bone quality and occlusal trauma.
