Evaluation of Radiographical Datas From an Oral Surgeon’s Point of View

Achieving long term success in dentistry depends on two basic principles. First principle is diagnosis and planning, second one is completing the treatment process without causing any pain to our patients! Before starting the treatment, diagnosing and planning the technique plus required materials are extremely important. For example in surgical procedures, while extracting an impacted tooth, previous defining of the location, angle and deepness causes minimal trauma to the patient and this is only posiible with radiographical evaluation. There is still a conflict in treatment techniques of cystic lesions between marsupialization of the related cyst and preferring longer process or enucleating the lesion immediately and preferring shorter process. However modern radiographical images make the decision lot easier. Radiographical datas lighten our way during implant surgeries and by their help, placing the implants in accurate places where they can support the prosthetic restoration ideally and also enhancing the bone volume if necessary with the correct techniques and materials are not beyond our reach. Entegration of the modern radiographical techniques with CAD-CAM technology makes possible the perfect placement of the implants with pre-prepared surcigal guides and even perfect adaptation of the pre-prepared prosthetics at the same session.

Is it possible to to reach the maximum patient pleasure with all these resoruces?
