Our center has employed one of the best external oral camera, in order to achieve the best and the highest quality images of your mouth and teeth. This specific camera has been adjusted particularly forthe dental images and allows us to have accurate and qualified-details of your mouth and teeth. It also allows the patients to see their teeth and figure out their dental problems before treatment.
Center diagnostic services (the diagnostic services of the clinic)
Diagnodent laser is an outstanding instrument and huge evolution for detecting the dental decays.Diagnodent laser in the detection of dental decays acts similar to the metal detector in detecting the metal objects on the earth. As the laser tip strikes to the decay, the instrument produces a sound. We really should be grateful for this new technology, because using it, your dentist able to detect invisiblecaries before being wider and do the required actionsto treat it. The use of laser is painless, easy and fast.
The steps of scanning thediagnodent laser
First, laser evaluates all of your teeth by scanning the clean dental surfaces. Later on, your teeth are scanned in a few minutes. If the laser strike with the decay, it produces an acoustic signal and the caries location is digitally detected. The level of teeth decay depends on the amount of recorded fluorescent.
The benefits of diagnodent laser
1. A 100% success in detection of caries which were unable to detecting them in other methods
2. It’s using is painless and carried in a few minutes
3. Caries can be detected in the early stages. Therefore, it can be resolved before becoming problematic
4. Resolving minor problems in order to reducing the dental treatments and finally the patient’s costs
5. Laser dose not damage your oral tissues and does not require eye protection during usage
The X-ray is one of the best methods for diagnosis of tissues health, although, in our center, with intraoral camera it can be respond to your dental requirements on the more extensive level. By using the intraoral camera,it can be able to observe and examine those of portions which are not ostensible by X-ray. What is the intraoral camera? This camera is small and convenient which is composed of a dental mirror with standard size along with the optic source having specific features, and we can easily detect the dental caries, cracks, broken fillings and/or the symptoms of periodontal disease and acting out their treatments. Our center also by using this camera allows you to see what is happening inside your mouth during the examination.By observing directly during the examination, you can better cooperate with your dentiston the necessarytherapies and it will be effective and useful for your treatment.
It is an instrument which helps the treatment be visual for the patient, that way, a pattern is prepared from the patient and the plaster model is made from the pattern which allows the dentist to evaluate the tissues and teeth precisely and use it as a reference during the treatment. Also by using the model, the dentist able to explain clearly the necessary treatments to be more perceptiblefor the patient.
As for the past ten years, the mouth-body connection theory has been discussed, it seems there is a connection betweenthe chronic infections of the tissues surrounding the teeth and gums with heart disease, diabetes, stroke and some of the cancers. Among the mouth gene-related experiments, we can suggest the three diagnostic tests which offering the valuable information in relation to estimate your condition in terms of dental diseases. One of these experiments can precisely identify and measure the bacteria causing the inflammation of gums and the tissues surrounding the teeth. The second part able to assesses whether you are genetically susceptible to the high risk of severe infections of the tissues surrounding the teeth and gums or not. The third part estimates whether you are carrying the HPV virus (or Human papillomavirus) or not?
When you are visiting a dental clinic for an examination, the dentists asking you to provide a series of X-ray images of your teeth.Fortunately, our clinic offers more convenience and safety for patientsby using the digital radiography instead of conventional and traditional radiographies. In digital radiography,the digital sensors are used and inserted inside the mouth and then with a beam, the image appears on the monitor.
The advantages of using digital radiographyrather than traditional radiography
It is reduced more than 90% of radiation
There is no need to developing and printingthe film and the timeis reduced
Transferring the dental documents can be through Email or other methods which areeasier
No harm to the environment
The reason for using digital radiography is not exclusively being convenient to do but also is for your health and safety
In order to placing the dental implants, CT scan may be required for the examination of tissues. It is also used CT scan in the following cases:
impacted teeth, jaw joint disorders, dental implants, changes in bone density, abscess, tumors and cysts
Intraoral radiographies, panoramic radiograph and cephalometry are used in the routine examination. However, in some cases more specialized radiographies are needed which provide more valuable and accuratethree-dimensionallyinformation of teeth anatomy and surrounding tissues. Particularly, in the cases which is supposed to place implant and we need to investigate the thickness of the bone surrounding the implant.
Nowadays, there are digital devices for the radiographic examination and diagnosis in which emitlow doses of radiation and still show more details.
Intraoral radiographies are very useful for the routine examination. Theseimagescan be taken either individually and overall, that is, include all of the teeth and periodontal tissues.
OPT is used to evaluatethe upper and lower jaws in two-dimensional (2-D) and shows the teeth status and inter-bone in two arcs. It is also used to assessment the maxillary sinuses(or upper jaw) and the morphology of mandibular condyles.
This test is used for the evaluationof three-dimensional anatomical structures and oral cavity. In this image, it can be investigated the following structures in two-dimensional axis.
One of the sides-part where can see the teeth and bones in front
One of the sides-part where can see the teeth and bones from the side-angle
The obtained data form this image and accurate assessment of the implant are very important. This image allows dentist to evaluate the size, bone height and width in three-dimensions and also can detect the veins, nerves and living structures entirely, and avoid the damage during implant placement.
