Why digital radiology? Digital radiology gives a clear indication of the structure of the teeth and jaw, and this process is actually one of the most crucial aspects in correct diagnosis. Treatments such as orthodontics, implantology, wisdom teeth removal, sleep apnoea and a wide range of other surgeries rely heavily on digital radiology technology.
The Temporomandibular Join connects your lower jaw with your skull and the condition of this join plays a very important role in your overall dental and oral health.
We are able to assist in conditions of pain and discomfort of the TMJ by obtaining 3D images of your skull, using 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography, to assess the symmetry of sinuses, jaw and dental structure. This technology allows us to give an accurate diagnose and treat your condition effectively.
3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is absolutely essential for the planning, assessment and design of dental implants and orthodontic treatments.
3D Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography (CBVT) is another important technology that allows us to plan and assess the removal of molars without having to scan any other unnecessary areas.
Our Orthopantomogram (OPG) module is used to obtain complete 2D imagery of your mouth teeth and upper jaw so that we can effectively plan wisdom teeth removals, among other surgeries, without affecting other parts of the anatomy.
These images also allow us to diagnose decays, periapical pathologies, dental and oseo anomalies and densities, cysts, tumours, dental malformations and impacted teeth among many others.
Our advanced Sinus radiology technology allows us to get the perfect view of the anatomy of you maxillary sinus. This assists in the diagnosis of cysts and abnormal growths.
At My Dentist St Leonards, our surgery rooms have been fitted with bitewing and periapical imaging technology. This technology allows our practitioners to take radiology images of particular areas of your mouth from the comfort of the dental share. This widely used practice is regularly used at our clinic.
