The Estetika Dental Practice is the first In Rzeszów to be equipped in the modern computer tomograph Kodak 9000 3D. What does it mean for the patients?
Computer tomography (CT) is a revolutionary evolution in picturing tissues. It enables reconstruction as well as planning different medical treatments, the majority of which is dental treatment from doing root canal treatment, to control tissues regeneration. Thanks to CT the implant surgery is far more predictable and precise. CT tests gives the doctors certainty. It also convinces the patients to the treatment that is being carried out. It is also crucial that picturing using conical method of dental tomography enables the doctors to achieve exact measurements of the amount and quality of tissues without putting the patients at risk high dose of radiation typical for hospital medic tomographs. Besides, examination carried out in dental surgery office is more convenient for the patient.
During being tested with the use of this device our patients are not at the risk of high dose radiation.
This is so indeed. It is a very important issue as, according to guidelines from many organizations, doctors should try to limit patients’ radiation as much as possible. Discrepancies in the tests carried out in dental offices and hospitals are partly the result of different methods of data registration.
When it comes to hospital tests that use so-called spiral tompography, the anatomic picture is presented as thin slices, usually in a rectangular shape, and are registered with every single circuit of the device around the patient’s body.
Why is CT usage needed in dentistry?
Computed tomography is widely used in implant treatment. Obtaining a picture of the three dimensions enables the doctor to make precise measurements of the amount of bones in the place of the planned implantation. Thanks to the special software it is possible to perform real time measurements and select the appropriate implant size. In this way, the treatment is completely safe, because there is no fear of damage to vital anatomical structures (such as alveolar nerve) during the insertion of the implant.
Is the examination with CBCT dental tomograph useful in a simple, everyday dentistry?
Absolutely. Tomographic diagnosis is very often used in a classical dentistry. CT provides, inter alia, the specification of the scope of pathological changes in the mouth and the specifications of the anomalies in the roots of the teeth. Thanks to the diagnosis of a computer one can prepare a very detailed plan of a surgery to remove the tooth which is incorrectly located or to remove any pathological changes. CT is reliable even with a difficult root canal treatment. In this way, the procedure is less invasive treatment, and is a huge advantage to the patient.
The latest generation of technology enables to provide the patients with the best dental care.
Not only the best but also the safest of all. CT Dental Technology is always evolving, and thus it is possible to substantially improve the quality of dental treatment.
