Diagnostics

Diagnostics is a vital tool prior to carrying out any treatment. Thorough diagnostics enables our doctors to develop a comprehensive customised treatment plan. The visuals obtained during the diagnostic procedures help us to explain the overall oral health to our patients and present them with various treatment options.

It should be noted that the clinic “Dantų harmonija – Dental Harmony” is equipped with a number of state-of-the-art diagnostic tools so all the needed diagnostic procedures are performed “here and now”.  It is really convenient for the patient as a lot of time is saved. All the necessary services, from diagnostics to treatment, are provided under one roof. Moreover, this way the systematic approach to solving problems is maintained and top quality throughout the whole treatment process is secured.

We are equipped with the most advanced technologies which allow our doctors to carry out comprehensive diagnostics.

The following diagnostic tools are used at “Dantų harmonija – Dental Harmony”: 

  • 3D dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT);
  • digital panoramic radiographs;
  • digital dental radiographs;
  • cephalometric radiographs;
  • diagnostic models;
  • intraoral camera;
  • CarieScan;
  • microscope.

 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)

  • This is the most accurate diagnostic method used in dentistry these days. A CBCT scan shows a real three-dimensional image of the upper and lower jaws as well as the areas around them.
  • A 3-D dental scan is used when the necessary information cannot be obtained by exploiting the traditional 2D dental imaging, for example before the dental implantation procedure.

Advantages of 3D computed tomography:

  • Accurate diagnostics. 3D computed tomography is the most accurate diagnostic tool available at the moment. A CBCT scan shows a three-dimensional image of the jaw.
  • Having a 3D image, the doctor is able to measure the width and density of the bone, the position of the maxillary sinus and see various anatomical structures.
  • 3D imaging allows the doctor to see clearly the internal composition of the tooth, the number of roots and canals, their length, direction, form and location, to determine the tooth arrangement, damaged and pathological areas.
  • The computer program enables to virtually place implants into the jaw, to work out how long they should be and make a great number of other calculations and prepare for treatment.
  • All this together allows the doctor to draw up an individualised treatment plan either for implant placement or endodontic treatment or any other applications.

What should we expect during the computed tomography scan?

  • A scan at “Dantų harmonija – Dental Harmony” using advanced cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) machine takes from several to several tens of seconds.
  • During the scanning procedure the patient stands still while the scanner rotates around his or her head.
  • After the examination there are no restrictions for any activities whatsoever, so you can continue with your usual daily routine.

Digital panoramic radiographs

These radiographs are also called orthopantomographs. They show a panoramic view, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw and the sinuses.

Digital dental radiographs

A radiograph of one or a few teeth can be taken, which thoroughly show the situation, for example, the advance of caries, the position and length of roots, root canal inflammation, etc

Cephalometric radiographs

These are lateral x-rays used in orthodontic treatment.

Diagnostic models

Diagnostic dental models are made of plaster and are intended for orthodontic treatment. They are manufactured at the laboratory at “Dantų harmonija – Dental Harmony” according to the patient’s individual dental impressions. These models help to assess the occlusion, the position of the teeth in the dental arches and the proportions better.

The intraoral camera

Any image can be enlarged up to 100 times. As a result, the dentist can evaluate the situation more accurately and the patients themselves can clearly see the picture.

“CarieScan”

The CarieScan is a reliable tool in accurate detection of “early” caries lesions not visible to the human eye and more extensive “hidden” lesions extending into dentine. This increases proactive preventive care.

The microscope is the best assistant of a meticulous and thorough doctor

Teeth restoration requires a high degree of diligence and precision. Therefore, the microscope comes to help so that an enlarged image could be obtained. This facilitates the doctor’s job and allows him or her to achieve their goal of delivering excellent treatment outcomes.  At “Dantų harmonija – Dental Harmony” we use the Leica M320 dental microscope, which can magnify the image 6,4 – 40 times.

The main applications of the microscope:

  • root canal treatment (endodontics);
  • restorative and cosmetic dentistry;
  • surgery: dental implantology, periodontology;
  • microprosthodontics.
