There have been significant advances in imaging in the last 20 years. The gap between imaging in dentistry and medicine can be crossed by using principles and techniques from medical radiology and applying them to dentistry. Advanced medical imaging technology can be sucessfully applied to comprehensive dental care. Dental implants, root canal therapy and dental extractions are just a few disciplines of dentistry that have benefited from these advanced technologies.
Dental radiology is mainly based on intraoral and panoramic examinations with an ongoing replacement of plain films with their digital counterparts. Medical radiology, on the other hand, is moving away from projectional radiography and is using more and more cross-sectional imaging modalities such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, ultrasound and positron emission tomography (PET). Of these contemporary and advanced techniques, only CT scans are being widely applied to dentistry. In my Palm Harbor, Tampa Bay FL area dentist office we offer advanced CT scanning, especially in dental implants.
