x-ray

Advanced diagnostics is the key to modern dentistry. At Dentus  we use panoramic x-rays and CT scans to help our patients achieve the best dental care possible.

Panoramic x-rays and CT scans  are used by dentists and oral surgeons as an important diagnostic tool. It covers a wider area than a conventional intraoral x-ray and, as a result, provides valuable information about the nasal area, sinuses, tooth positioning and gum and bone irregularities. The dentist with the aid of x-ray technology is able to make a more accurate dental examination.  This examination is also used to plan treatment for full and partial dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
Without a panoramic x-ray it would be difficult to find and diagnose:

  •     cavities under old fillings or in between teeth
  •     tooth infections
  •     advanced periodontal disease
  •     oral cysts
  •     tumors and oral cancer
  •     temporomandibular joint disorder
  •     sinusitispanoramic x-ray

CT scans are used for dental implant treatment planning.  With the CT scan the dentist is able to accurately place the dental implants in the jaw. A CT scan can also aid in :

  •     determining bone structure and tooth orientation
  •     surgical planning for problematic  teeth extractions
  •     evaluation of the jaw, nerve canals and sinuses
  •     detecting, measuring and treating jaw tumours and oral cancers
  •     reconstructive surgery.
