Photograph of the temporomandibular joint: Diagnosis and assessment of the state of the joint system
A picture of the temporomandibular joint is an important tool in orthopedics and dentistry for diagnosis and assessment of the state of the joint system. This method allows you to obtain a detailed image of the temporomandibular joints, which helps doctors establish the correct diagnosis and develop an effective treatment plan.
One of the main advantages of the temporomandibular joint imaging is the ability to assess the structure and function of the joints. This method allows you to detect abnormalities such as arthritis, arthrosis, joint dysfunction, dislocations, injuries and other disorders. The picture provides detailed information about the state of the joint system, which allows the doctor to make an accurate diagnosis and choose the optimal approach to treatment.
Another advantage of the temporomandibular joint imaging is its non-invasiveness and speed. The patient simply places the head in a certain position, and the X-ray machine takes the picture, without the need for any procedures that require invasive intervention. In addition, the procedure itself takes little time, which ensures convenience and comfort for the patient.
In our clinic, we use the VATECH PaX-i3D Smart computer dental tomograph - model PHT-30LFO manufactured by TECH&E-WOO - the world leader in the production of tomographs.
LOW DOSE – low radiation dose and HIGH IMAGE QUALITY – high image accuracy. That is, the tomograph allows you to perform high-quality diagnostics with minimal radiation exposure. And thanks to 3D visualization, the doctor has the opportunity to reproduce various processes, for example, tooth implantation.
The innovative device in the form of an arch on this model allows you to get a wider view of the dentition (including wisdom teeth). There are no hidden zones.
From all this, we conclude that computer tomography is the most accurate modern method of diagnosis in today's dentistry. It is not necessary to prepare for a CT scan. Choose a convenient time, call us or register on the website and come. The procedure takes up to 10-15 minutes.
