Prevent, assess, plan
We are firm believers in the importance of early detection through the use of radiology.This is why we operate radiology instruments that are most efficient and most respectful of our patients' health. Most pathologies affecting the teeth, bones and gums begin stealthily and silently, without any noticeable alterations of the oral cavity and without any particular symptoms that might raise an alarm. For this reason all radiology instruments are of great importance, as they help the dentist detect oral cavity pathologies before they are manifested. With a simple dental X-ray you can discover cavities in interdental areas that can hardly be detected by the naked eye, examine whether any tooth root has been infected, spot areas of dental bone resorption which untreated might lead to an onset of periodontitis (pyorrhea).
For many years now we have performed in our clinic digital dental X-rays, which allow us to run elaborate analyses by processing the X-ray images and, most importantly, enable us to apply minimal doses of radiation. But radiology is important not only for diagnostic purposes. Planning major rehabilitation treatments using prostheses and implants, assessing risks involved in extracting teeth that are set in the proximity of nerves and blood vessels, scheduling dental displacements using fixed or removable braces that respect the supporting bones and airways – all are just a few of the benefits of our ability to perform more complex radiographic exams such as orthopantomographies (OPGs) (orthopanoramic) and volumetric CTs. We have set up a section of our clinic where any type of radiographic examination can be performed, thus avoiding the need to send our patients to other public or private healthcare institutions for such exams, which are indispensable for formulating a proper therapy.
