Dental X-ray Center – 2D imaging
Digital two-dimensional (2D) intraoral and panoramic radiography has been deeply entrenched in everyday dental practice over the last 20 years. However, because of the overlapping of complex anatomical structures, 2D images are difficult to interpret. When measuring, it is always necessary to use a safety dose to compensate for the magnification caused by the recording technique itself, since we do not have any information on the width (thickness) and exact spatial position. However, 2D intraoral and panoramic radiography is a technology that has been a mainstay of ours for so many years and has helped us so many times in dealing with dental problems, and for that reason we believe that for the longest time, the same 2D image will be the basis of diagnostics, planning and control in our offices dental medicine and its specialist practices.
Intraoral tooth imaging shows a full-sized tooth with associated root and adjacent teeth.
Intraoral imaging is based on:
- parallel projection
- eccentric projection
- bite-wing technique
- dental status
- Orthopantomogram – An orthopantomogram is an x-ray of the maxiofacial region showing the upper and lower jaws with all the teeth, with both jaw joints and associated sinuses.
- Paranasal Sinus Imaging – Paranasal sinus imaging captures the sinuses of this surrounding structure. They can be shot in several different projections while the standard Posterio-Aerial recording is standard.
- Temporomandibular joints (lateral-frontal) —The image of the temporomandibular joints clearly shows the joints and their relationship with the surrounding bone structures in different projections. The joints are recorded in frontal or lateral projections with the mouth open and closed.
Dental X-ray Center – 3D Imaging
3D lets you capture:
- Capturing one tooth
- Capture of jaw segment
- One jaw shooting
- Capture of upper and lower jaw
- Sinus recording
- Temporomandibular joint imaging
3D image and comparison of CBCT with classic CT
Our business is directly dependent on constant education, skills development and the adoption of new technologies. By adopting 3D technology, we not only remain competitive and innovative in the marketplace, we greatly facilitate our work and enable our patients to be diagnosed safely with accurate therapy planning. Cone Beam CT from the X-ray source sends a conical beam that falls in large part to the detector. As they pass through the subject, the X-rays change what the detector registers and turns into an electrical impulse, which is transformed into a screen image by complex computer operation. One circular rotation of the radiation source and the detector around the subject is sufficient to collect all the information to create a three-dimensional image.
Classic Spiral or Multi-Slice CT (MSCT) for multiple rotations around a linear beam object, and the only way to collect data from such a beam is multiple rotation around a subject with a change in the position of a radiation source or a subject, combined with much greater source power (90 mA at classic, 4-10 mA at CBCT) gives a much higher emitted and received radiation dose when recording with classical CT than CBCT. As the tube voltage of classical CT is higher than 20-30 kV and the recording time is minimally double (only 18 sec at CBCT), we get multiple radiation emitted and received radiation. Furthermore, CBCT and CT image quality comparison studies (MSCT, Spiral CT, Linear CT) conclude that most CBCT devices have an image comparable to that of classic CT, while some CBCT devices deliver even better image quality than classical CT -a.
