Dental clinics Medstom have both Carestream (USA) - 2D and 3D and one of the latest Roentgen digital kagel models with an intraoral sensor from MyRay (Italy), allowing both:
- individual computer settings adjusted by the electronic interface of the apparatus in view of the structure of the patient under examination;
- a wide range of programs depending on the anatomical shape of the jaw;
- great freedom of movement, extraordinary ergonomics and mobility of the apparatus - important for achieving rapid exposure and precise diagnostic results, as well as for a completely painless and comfortable Roentgen examination;
- a minimum dose of ionizing radiation..
The photos are visible only in seconds in the office of the treating dentist, they can be provided in electronic or paper form as well as to be sent to the patient via e-mail.
Roentgen tests are used in dentistry to diagnose diseases and teeth and jaw injuries. Using the roentgen can be determined:
- the number, size and position of the teeth;
- the presence of broken or broken teeth;
- bone changes in periodontal disease and osteomyelitis;
- the presence of granuloma (purulent sac);
- fracture of the jaw root jaws;
- the presence of bone tumors and cysts;
- other anomalies in the teeth and jawbone.
A small roentgen film is uses in a nontransparent package, which is pressed to the teeth or is bitten, and the tibus of the roentgen apparatus is placed close to the outer side of the cheek of the patient. This way an image of only e dew teeth is received.
A special roentgen machine, called an orthopantomograph, is used. The roentgen tube rotates around the patient's head, moving the film opposite to it in a special cassette. In this way a panoramic image of the upper and lower jaws is obtained.
It is estimated that roentgen examinations of teeth and jaws create a risk for cancer in one in a million patients.
In order to protect you, the dental practitioner assesses whether the roentgen image is needed and what type it should be.
The roentgen engineer places a protective coating to protect against excessive radiation of the thyroid gland. In a panoramic roentgen, a protective apron is used to protect the body.
Children are twice as sensitive to the exposure to ionizing radiation than adults. The children's panorama program is specially designed to respond to child anatomy while limiting exposure time and exposure.
With pregnant women, the fetus and the baby are more sensitive to radiation, so any unnecessary exposure should be avoided. Warn your doctor if you think you may be pregnant so that they could protect you at the hightest level!
