Teleradiography (TRG) is understood as a type of diagnostic study that is the most effective when correcting bite, correcting the position of teeth, prosthetics, as well as injuries associated with the maxillofacial area. Modern equipment used to perform this procedure allows you to ensure the minimum radiation exposure. That is why such research is completely safe. Moreover, in the case pregnancy, it is prescribed only when absolutely necessary.
The indications for teleradiography are as follows:
- Identification of factors that influence a malocclusion.
- Perform a cranial bone characterization study.
- Determination of the direction of tooth displacement.
- To identify individual growth characteristics, as well as the anatomical structure and pathologies existing in the dentoalveolar system.
- Providing intermediate control over the effectiveness of treatment.
- When planning dental prosthetics.
During this procedure, the patient can sit or stand. To keep the image clear, the head the person must be motionless. This procedure is completely painless and takes a few minutes time. It can be performed in a comfortable environment for the patient. It should be noted that a medical specialist has the ability to prescribe a diagnosis also after a preliminary examination. If necessary, can require panoramic or targeted dental imaging, as well as computed tomography.
The advantage of research is as follows:
- Possibility of obtaining maximum information for medical professionals (orthodontists).
- Complete safety of the procedure due to the use of modern equipment.
- The TRG procedure takes a fairly small amount of time, which allows you to quickly obtain and study data, diagnose, and start treatment.
