Diagnosis of teeth

In order to receive high-quality treatment of the oral cavity, it is necessary to undergo a full diagnosis in dentistry, because only after a thorough examination the dentist will be able to see all the problems and pathologies that need to be eliminated. After performing all the necessary procedures, the doctor offers the patient a treatment plan, calculates its cost and duration. Diagnosis of teeth is mandatory for almost any procedure related to treatment or implantation, because without a detailed clinical picture of the patient it is impossible to accurately diagnose, assess the amount of treatment and prescribe the right course. Therefore, due to improper therapy, serious complications can occur, including tooth loss.
Today there is a panoramic picture of teeth, X-rays of teeth and even 3D diagnostics, as well as many other modern methods that give the most accurate picture of the patient’s oral cavity.

Modern diagnostic methods in dentistry

At the first visit of the patient to our dentistry, the doctor conducts a visual examination, assesses the general appearance of the dentition and the condition of the mucous membranes. After that, it is necessary to determine the condition of the lymph nodes – their increase indicates the presence of inflammation or infection in the body. After the examination, the doctor assesses the condition of the teeth, noting the number of fillings, lost or removed teeth, with great importance in assessing the patient’s bite.

However, it should be understood that the examination by a dentist does not give a complete picture of the patient’s teeth. Quite often the problem lies much deeper, and only modern diagnostic methods will help to understand exactly where. Today, diagnosis in orthodontics involves the use of the following methods:

  1. Aiming shot. This type of radioscopy allows you to carefully examine the root of the tooth, to detect caries at an early stage, as well as the fit of the filling and the condition of the root in general.
  2. X-ray of the jaw. Usually dental X-rays are used before dental transplantation, as well as before other dental procedures: for example, before treatment. By the way, contrary to popular belief, X-rays of teeth during pregnancy are completely safe for mother and child, because the radiation is directed to the dental system and is negligible in relation to other parts of the body. X-rays of the jaw are often performed even on children under 3 years of age, if necessary. The safety of the procedure has been proven at the scientific level, so there is no reason to worry.
  3. Panoramic shot of teeth. This procedure is most often used during the initial examination of the patient, as it allows you to examine all the teeth in detail at once. Thanks to this picture, the doctor will be able to assess the condition of bone tissue, teeth, maxillary sinuses. However, it should be remembered that such a picture of the teeth gives only a planar image, and therefore may not always be accurate enough to establish a diagnosis.
  4. Computer diagnostics. The most popular and at the same time the safest method today is 3D diagnostics (X-ray) of teeth. This image is taken on a computer using a special program that allows you to examine the oral cavity to the smallest detail and from all sides. This 3D X-ray of the teeth is simply necessary before implantation, sinus lift or bone grafting. To date, this is the most reliable diagnostic method that can detect any pathology of the dentition.

Additional diagnostic methods

The above methods are considered the most common: yes, X-rays of the oral cavity are performed, for example, before treatment, but also at different stages of therapy to monitor the effectiveness of treatment and the condition of the patient’s teeth. However, there are other ways to assess the health of the oral cavity. Among them are:

  1. Electrodiagnostics in dentistry. This is a fairly old way to detect tooth decay or pulpitis. The device delivers an electric shock to the tooth, thus determining the viability of the pulp. The faster it responds to such an impulse, the more likely it is that there is no inflammation of the pulp. If the tooth does not respond, you will need dental treatment under anesthesia or nerve removal.
  2. Apexlocator. A special device that detects the length of the roots of the teeth is most often used for filling teeth. However, this method must be used in conjunction with an X-ray to ensure that the treatment is correct and effective.
  3. Dental microscope. This is a modern device that will be much easier to work with in the tooth canals. It will ensure a successful operation in difficult cases. However, it should be remembered that the use of this device will be quite expensive.

For the most accurate diagnosis, a full examination of the patient in dentistry using several methods is recommended. Doctors usually limit themselves to X-rays of all teeth, panoramic images and CT scans, but in some cases additional tests may be needed, which should not be abandoned, as all this affects the correct diagnosis and treatment of periodontitis, gums, caries and other oral diseases. cavities.

A big advantage is the small percentage of radiation when using X-rays, so you can safely do X-rays of baby baby teeth, undergo this procedure during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
