With a simple explanation, it means intraoral diagnosis .
It is the clinic where the patients are first visited and examined, as well as evaluating the radiological findings and making diagnosis and treatment planning.
The main purpose of oral diagnosis is to see what the source of complaints of patients is and to create planning for all oral problems with a good planning. In addition, many systemic diseases show important symptoms in the mouth. With a detailed and good examination, early diagnosis of systemic disease is also provided. We do not encounter only decayed teeth and unhealthy gums in the mouth. At the same time, joints, jaw bones, salivary glands, tongue, cheek and mouth floor and mucosa are checked. As a result, problems encountered in any of these are included in the planning.
The most commonly used digital radiographs in dentistry:
3D Dental Tomography
Periapical Radiography (RVG)
3D DENTAL VOLUMETRIC TOMOGRAPHY
Nowadays, with the development of technology, it is possible to obtain a tomography of the entire chin or just the desired area in very low doses.
It is a three-dimensional tomographic imaging technique used in cases where traditional imaging techniques such as large cysts, tumors, major surgeries, and implant applications are inadequate.
Unlike other radiographs, this method uses three-dimensional moaning. In addition, it is taken in cross sections. Thus, the neighborhoods of teeth and pathological formations with the surrounding teeth are examined in all three planes.
It is particularly indicated for use in a large number of routine implant applications; In these cases, the bone thickness in the horizontal direction and the neighborhoods of the sinus cavities are determined.
One of the most important advantages is that the captured three-dimensional image is instantly transferred to the computer environment, stored in the patient file and quickly printed as a CD.
It is a technique that displays all of the existing teeth in the mouth, embedded (not erupted) teeth, bone tissue surrounding the teeth and the entire jawbone.
While the captured images are instantly transferred to the computer environment, there is no time shortage. If desired, it can be stored in patient files for a long time. And at the same time, we can count operations such as detailing, reducing and enlarging the image among its facilities.
As usage areas; General oral examination, impacted tooth extraction, resection, small cysts and simple surgical procedures can be listed. Its most important advantage is that it is fast and the amount of radiation the patient receives is low.
It is used to obtain more detailed images in small area about suspicious situations detected in panoramic radiographs.
It is an intraoral imaging technique in which a few teeth and the bone tissue surrounding these teeth can be visualized.
It is superior to panoramic radiographs in terms of image detail. It is practical because it can be taken shortly and quickly during the procedure.
Cephalometric images are generally used in patients who require orthodontic treatment and orthognathic surgery. They are special graphs taken in size equal to the actual size of the head, in which the size of the skull and facial bones and their positions relative to each other are evaluated.
With the cephalometric x-ray device, skull bones and soft tissues can be imaged in the same film in anterior, posterior and lateral positions.
Cephalometric x-rays can be taken to prepare the treatment plan before the treatment, to evaluate the effects of treatment during and after the treatment.
