Oral Medicine

The American Academy of Oral Medicine defines the field as follows:

Oral medicine is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the oral health care of medically compromised patients and with the diagnosis and nonsurgical management of medically related disorders or conditions affecting the oral and maxillofacial region.

Following are the fundamentals:

  • Recognition of the interaction of oral and systematic health
  • Integration of medical and oral health care
  • Management of pharmacotherapeutics necessary for treatment of oral and systemic diseases
  • Investigation of the etiology and treatment of oral diseases through basic science and clinical research including vital tissue staining, cytology, biopsy, etc
  • Research, teaching, and patient care
  • Provision of care for medically complex patients and for those undergoing cancer therapy
  • Prevention, definition and management of disorders

Common disorders

  • Salivary gland disease
  • Orofacial pain and other Neurosensory disorders
  • Disorders of the oral mucosal membranes including Ulcerative, Vesicular, Bullous lesion, Red and White lesions, Benign lesions, Pigmented, infectious diseases of the Orofacial region

DIGITAL RADIOLOGY

Digital Imaging is the result of X-ray interaction with electrons in electronic sensor pixels (picture elements), conversion of analog data to digital data, computer processing, and display of the visible image on a computer screen.

Advantages

  • Lower dose of radiation
  • Computer manipulation
  • Image analysis
  • No film processing
  • Time reduction
  • Easy storage
  • Easy and quick image transfer synthesizing new images based upon image data acquired from multiple projections
  • The purpose of these modalities is to access information about the object of interest in three dimensions. RVG, CT, CBCT, MRI and Positron Emission Tomography Scanners are amongst the most well known and sophisticated image synthesizers for maxillofacial imaging

Indications

  • It can be used to view the image where multiple images are required for analysis
  • In endodontic practice to measure the root canal length, working length and distance between obturating material and the root apex
  • In periodontics, to assess and measure the height of the alveolar bone
  • It can be used in a patient who is unco-operative for regular radiographic techniques
  • To evaluate the bony changes in pathology of jaws
