Have you ever experienced the consequences of improperly diagnosed disease? Even if no, you have probably heard from friends about dental problems, which remained unnoticed, developed and led to tooth extraction. The diagnostic error impedes any efforts to cure teeth. That is why it is very important to find the clinic, which has modern diagnostic equipment and experienced dentists, capable of making correct diagnosis.
The Dentistry Department of Oxford Medical clinic uses the following advanced diagnostic methods:
- X-ray imaging;
- panoramic X-ray imaging;
- CT scan;
- diagnosis in articulator;
- Schulz’s method;
- T-Scan III occlusal analysis;
- palpation of temporomandibular joint and masticatory muscles of TMJ;
- diagnosis with intraoral camera.
Forget about the old-fashioned film X-ray, which state and most private clinics use – it gives little information due to the absence of possibility of enhancing the imprint on the film. We use the X-ray scan, which allows making a precise digital X-ray image of your tooth and immediately display it on the screen. During the consultation, the doctor enhances the image for identifying smallest defects and offers you different treatment options.
The use of panoramic X-ray imaging allows obtaining a panoramic image of the upper and lower jaw. When displayed enhanced on the computer, it enables to perform the comprehensive examination of the whole oral cavity.
The panoramic X-ray imaging system in Oxford Medical clinic is additionally fitted with a device for making a front and profile image of the skull – cephalostat of the last model. The obtained teleradiology fully displays the condition of joints and bones of both jaws; that is why orthodontists regularly use it while building the orthodontic models.
The above-listed methods relate to 2D diagnosis, which provides a significant amount of information; however, it often requires detailing, using 3D diagnostics. Only several clinics of the country have the digital panoramic X-ray scan, which allows making 3D images of teeth, bone tissue, temporomandibular joint, and even the motion computed tomography of the joint, and Oxford Medical is among them.
During the denture placement, the diagnosis and preliminary preparation for the procedure is performed in the individualized SAM-articulator, which allows creating an accurate model of your jaw and precisely copy its movement. This approach allows making all manipulations so that they do not impact your teeth. For example, no odd “elevations” will appear, and the teeth will not be chipped, the crowns – get cracked etc.
The aesthetic aspect is also important for performance of dental manipulations. Thanks to Schulz’s method, the doctor demonstrates a future external view of teeth before starting their treatment. This method of wax modelling enables the dentist to make corrections before the beginning of a treatment and makes sure that the final result will fully satisfy the patient.
T-Scan III occlusal diagnosis guarantees the preservation of your teeth after treatment. The essence of the diagnosis consists in the insertion of electronic sensors inside the oral cavity, placed on the thin plate. After that, all imperfections are displayed on the monitor, and then the teeth are filed down according to much more precise data, than after the copy paper, which was used for long in Soviet dentistry.
In 3 months, the dentist will repeat the T-scan procedure (occlusal analysis), because the muscle load slightly changes after placement of any types of dentures, and the change of their tone can provoke unacceptable contacts. The man gets used, but such contacts can lead to destructive process; that is why this procedure is very significant. The T-rescanning is performed in Oxford Medical free of charge.
The highly qualified doctors of Oxford Medical also competently perform one of the underlying methods of diagnosis – palpation of temporomandibular joint and masticatory muscles that is essential for correct diagnosis.
One more innovation is the alternative to a miniature mirror, which was previously inserted inside the oral cavity – the intraoral camera, which allows performing a maximally precise examination and noticing insignificant negative changes. Thanks to this method, you will not just hear the doctor’s opinion, but you will see the real condition of your teeth on the plasma screen.
