Dentistry diagnostics services refer to the various tests and procedures that dentists and dental specialists use to diagnose and evaluate dental and oral health conditions. These services can include:
Dental X-rays - These imaging tests use radiation to produce images of the teeth, jawbones, and surrounding structures. Dental X-rays can help diagnose dental caries, gum disease, and other dental and oral health conditions.
Oral cancer screenings - These screenings involve a visual and tactile examination of the mouth, throat, and neck to detect any abnormalities or signs of oral cancer.
Salivary diagnostics - These tests analyze saliva to detect biomarkers and other indicators of oral and systemic health conditions, such as periodontal disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) - This advanced imaging technology produces 3D images of the teeth, jawbones, and surrounding structures to aid in the diagnosis and treatment planning of complex dental and oral health conditions.
Digital impressions - These computerized scans are used to create detailed, accurate 3D models of the teeth and oral cavity, which can be used to plan and design dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Biopsy - In some cases, a tissue sample may be taken from the mouth or surrounding structures for laboratory analysis to diagnose oral cancer or other conditions. Dentistry diagnostics services are an essential part of dental and oral health care, and can help dentists and dental specialists diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions. These services can also help patients achieve optimal oral and systemic health, and improve their overall quality of life.
Who needs them?
Dentistry diagnostics services may be needed by anyone who is experiencing dental or oral health problems or who is seeking routine dental care. These services can help diagnose and evaluate a wide range of dental and oral health conditions, including:
Tooth decay and cavities
Gum disease and periodontal disease
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders
Sleep apnea and snoring
Malocclusion (misaligned bite)
Tooth loss and dental implants

Developmental abnormalities and congenital disorders
Dental and oral health problems can affect people of all ages, from young children to seniors. Routine dental care and diagnostics can help prevent and detect dental and oral health problems early on, before they become more serious and require more invasive treatments. Patients with pre-existing medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, may also benefit from regular dental diagnostics to manage their overall health. Ultimately, anyone who wants to maintain optimal dental and oral health should consider seeking out dentistry diagnostics services.
