During an X-ray, the tissue or organ to be analyzed is penetrated by high- electromagnetic waves (photons) which go to impress a film or a digital sensor. According to the thickness and consistency of the various tissues (skin, mucous membranes, bone, teeth), the film or digital sensors receive a minor or major amount of photons, thus representing the structure of the tissue through various shades of grey.
In dentistry it is possible to use various radiological techniques, ranging from the X-ray of individual teeth to the three-dimensional tomography of the teeth or jaw.
Dental radiology is shifting more and more from technology based on X-ray film to digital technology, which is based on electronic sensors and data processing through the use of special computer software, with exponential increase in the quality of images obtained and therefore an increased quality of final diagnosis, together with a remarkable reduction of radiation absorbed by the patient. In our surgeries, this has been practiced for several years with numerous advantages both for our team and for the patient.
For a diagnostic context and with the least X-ray absorption our surgeries are equipped with digital intraoral radiography. We also possess ultra modern equipment that matches the best features of the digital orthopantomograph in those particular features of a digital cranial 3D, CT Scan of latest generation for a panoramic CT view of the jaw.

All tests performed in our surgeries are recorded in digital form in the patient’s medical file so doctors can have immediate access to information while on network during surgery. These tests will then be available to patients at any time and can be delivered through digital media on request.
