Complex diagnostics is carried out according to the examination scheme prepared by a specially trained doctor.
After processing all the information, the results are discussed with the patient and a detailed plan for the optimal treatment is to be prepared.
Complex diagnostics include:
- Initial examination of the patient:
- patient complaints;
- collecting dental history;
- filling the objective of the survey data;
- filling the dental formula;
- filling periodontal card;
- physical examination of the oral cavity;
- definition of occlusion index;
- removing impressions from the upper and lower jaws.
- Filling cards of clinical and functional diagnostics, which include questioning, palpation of muscles and temporomandibular joints, tooth contact analysis and the lower jaw movements.
- Computer condylography / axiography is an additional examination method that enables us to determine the pathology related to joints and muscle.
- Orthopantomography - that is a panoramic picture of the teeth and temporomandibular joints.
- Teleradiography - a picture that allows to determine the ratio of skeletal jaws, the lower third of the height of the face, the angle of inclination of the occlusal plane etc.
- Bio JVA apparatus - an investigation that allows to identify changes (disturbances), which occur in the temporomandibular joint.
- Myography (Bio EMG) - muscle contractions check using a special device - myograph; It allows to explore the work of muscles.
- Analysis of the models (casts) of the upper and lower jaw in the articulator - the device that displays the movement of the lower jaw.
- Intraoral and extraoral photographs of the patient.
- Work with the "Gamma Dental" program, which enables to plan a comprehensive treatment by using the axiography and teleradiography data.
- Survey MPI, where articular displacement heads in 3 planes is examined.
