Computed 3D tomography
The X-ray image is the main criterion for making a diagnosis in dentistry. However, conventional panoramic or sighting images still have limited diagnostic potential, since they provide information in only two planes.
How is the procedure going?
The diagnostic procedure is simple and reliable. The irradiation area is limited to a cone-shaped X-ray beam. The beam only passes through a very small area of the patient’s diagnosed area, resulting in an incredibly high resolution 3D image with the lowest X-ray dose. The computer program reproduces a three-dimensional digital image for 1-2 minutes, while the doctor has the opportunity to view the image in more detail along three axes, layer by layer or at the required interval.
Scope of digital three-dimensional imaging of the dentition
The three-dimensional tomograph is a universal diagnostic tool of a new generation with great potential for use in various fields of dentistry and maxillofacial surgery and otorhinolaryngology.
The wide range of applications of this innovative equipment is due not only to the cleanliness and high image quality of the dentition and non-erupted teeth, but also to the display of the most important details, including the structure of root canals, periodontal diseases, and alveolar bone defects.
The diagnostic capabilities of the tomograph are invaluable for injuries of the dentition and teeth, anomalies in the development of teeth and jaws, chronic focal infections of the facial skull (when it is difficult to establish the cause of pain), in implantology, complex extraction and prosthetics of teeth.
