Correct diagnosis, correct therapy
Dental radiographs are fundamental to facilitate the dentist to make a diagnosis and individuate correct therapies. Our practice is provided with cutting-edge instruments to make the best radio-diagnostic investigation by minimizing x-ray exposure. X-rays are employed for various reasons: check the tooth root during devitalization, have a full mouth radiograph of a patient needing implants etc.
Intraoral radiography, one of the most used techniques, allows the dentist to have images of one, or a maximum of three, tooth in one single digital support. Through this exam, the dentist can verify the parameters or check the status of previously made therapies, but only on the adjacent teeth. Intraoral x-rays are employed during the devitalization of a tooth, to verify the length of channels contained in the roots of the tooth, that have to be cleaned.
Prophylaxis Cleaning with calcium phosphates
We recommend regular applications of calcium phosphates-based products to maintain the correct enamel mineralisation and prevent caries, white spots, sensitive gums etc., especially during childhood.
Fill up tooth grooves with sealants
The OMS and the Department of Health recommend sealants to fill up the grooves in permanent molars and premolars to guarantee a better cleaning of children’s teeth occlusal surface and prevent the risk of bacterial infiltration and decay.
This procedure is painless and safe but must be carried out according to the correct timing of intervention.
The dentist will guide you in choosing the right moment to carry out this important form of prevention.
We recommend at least six-monthly visits and professional hygiene sessions.
