X-rays and Diagnosis
The process of identifying the presence of a disease and assigning it a specific medical/dental entity is called diagnosis.
We arrive at a diagnosis after listening to the specific complaints that you present with, for example pain, conducting a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and jaws, as well as taking and interpreting some tests, for example x-rays of your jaws.
Our practice is equipped with a state-of-the art digital intra-oral x-ray machine to ensure high-quality radiographs. The use of a sensor also ensures timely and predictable quality as opposed to use of a film. Where a bigger x-ray of the jaws, commonly referred to as OPG is indicated, we have partnered with imaging centres in Nakuru to ensure a seamless process of our patients getting the x-rays taken and delivered both physically and digitally at a pocket-friendly cost.
Once we have made a diagnosis, we tailor-make the treatment plan according to your needs and desires starting from emergency needs and those procedures that would allow you to function optimally. You are also given multiple possible treatment options and jointly with the dentist, a treatment plan that is best suited to you financially and technically is selected.
Consequently, your appointments are tailored based on your availability and ability to attend your appointments to ensure optimum attendance and success of your treatment.
