Thanks to the Cone Beam technology of our Vatech 3D Tomograph we can perform three-dimensional CT scans of the maxilla while exposing the patient to very low radiation levels.
The device is housed in a fully screened dedicated room equipped with leaded glass (useful for claustrophobic patients or for monitoring children).
Cone Beam Tomography (in some ways equivalent to the CAT scans of the past) is a powerful diagnostic aid for countless branches of dentistry and maxillofacial surgery. With a few seconds of “open” examination, it is possible to have a three-dimensional radiological image of the desired volume. This result is very important for the design of Computer-Guided Dental Implants, for the extraction of teeth with complete bone inclusion, in the treatment of endodontic lesions, for the enucleation of bone maxillary cysts and for the diagnosis of maxillary lesions. With an exposure only slightly higher than an orthopanoramic, it makes diagnosis and surgical procedures easier, safer and more precise.

Digital orthopantomography and the endorals with RVG enable a drastic reduction (up to 10 times) in radiation exposure, an immediate evaluation of the exam with a dedicated software, and an unlimited number of copies.
Our radiographs and orthopantomographs are all equipped with specific software for pediatric dentistry. The children are protected as required by law, and x-rays are taken with the lowest possible exposure, based on the age and the body structure of the young patient.
PLEASE NOTE: In our office, as required by Law (and unlike some low-cost structures), every radiological examination belongs to the patient regardless of whether it was done free of charge. The patient will simply need to request it within the customary storage time limits.

Oral mucosa carcinoma is one of the most widespread and aggressive neoplasms in the human population. Mucosal exposure to chemicals, physical and thermal aggression, repeated trauma and harmful habits such as smoking causes the formation of benign lesions of the oral cavity with a reduced degree of dysplasia that may evolve, even quickly, into a Oral Mucosa Carcinoma. In our office, thanks to the long experience of Doctors Marco and Fabrizio Santilli at the departments of maxillofacial Surgery and Clinical Odontostomatology, respectively, we can help you prevent (identifying bad habits and conditions) and above all diagnose any suspect lesions. A very effective aid in diagnosing and assessing the evolution of precancerous condition is the Velscope SX, an absolutely non-invasive tool that uses a superselective lens system to exploit reflected fluorescence of mucous membranes by highlighting with greater clarity the mucosal areas affected by dysplasia. The images are then saved and compared over time to evaluate, where necessary, their evolution, or to guide the surgical excision.
