In our office, my team and I rely on modern 3D X-ray. This helps us to determine hidden inflammation; that has caused you problems over a long time. The 3D X-ray makes it possible to determine the amount of bone loss within protracted gingivitis. With this, the reasons why prostheses do not fit correctly can also be found and then quickly repaired.
Help by unclear toothache, with implants and periodontal disease
Often, patients find their way to my office, because they have a persistent, long going toothache for which, the cause has not been able to be found. In these cases, the 3D X-ray enables us to obtain a clear picture. Moreover, a 3D X-ray offers other key advantages too, such as with implants: With the 3D X-ray, we are able to receive a 3 dimensional image of the jaw within just a short amount of minutes. When placing implants, this helps us to utilize the maximum amount of existing bone for best results. This way, we can usually set the implant without the process of doing a complex and extensive bone augmentation. For my patients, this means security. The surgical procedure then remains as a small course of action.
Another field of application is the assessment of bone pockets within periodontitis.
