Oral Medicine and Radiology


  1. What is Oral Medicine and Radiology?
  • Oral Medicine and Radiology is the specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and medical management of complex diagnostic and medical disorders affecting the mouth and jawsand the Radiology part of the subject equips the budding dentists in the field of diagnosis using conventional and advanced imaging methods
  1. What does an Oral Medicine doctor do?
  • An oral medicine doctor is trained to diagnose and manage patients with disorders of the orofacial region, essentially as a “physician of the mouth.” An oral medicine doctor has received additional specialized training and experience in the diagnosis and management of oral mucosal abnormalities (growths, ulcers)
  1. What is an OPG?
  • An OPG (Orthopantomagram) is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw.
  1. What is the use of OPG?
  • used to check the TMJ (temperomandibular joint)
  • Orthodontic Treatments
  • Wisdom Teeth
  • An OPG also demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted through the gum.
  1. What is CBCT?
  • Cone beam computed tomography is a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography where the X-rays are divergent, forming a cone. CBCT has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry and interventional radiology, among other things.
  1. What are the advantages of CBCT?
  • Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT) systems. The CBCT systems used by dental professionals rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam.
  1. What is CBCT used for in dentistry?
  • Cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
