DENTAL DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE
Integrated radiology system
In 1995 we began the development and installation of our INTEGRATED DIGITAL RADIOLOGY SYSTEM, which currently consists of a network of 50 stations with Digital Radiology and Orthopantomography based on the Digora® system.
It consists of an iCAT Cone Beam scanner
The system has been designed to respect as far as possible the A.L.A.R.A. (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle, an internationally agreed principle established to minimise the dose received by the patient in diagnostic imaging examinations.
Cone Beam Scanner
After years of following the R&D development of the various international manufacturers of high-tech radiological equipment, in 2006 we became the second European dental centre to install a second-generation Cone Beam Scanner model iCAT.
Generation of equipment that represented a great leap forward, characterised by its minimal radiation, its comfort for the patient, which allows the scan to be carried out in less than 8 seconds, in a seated position, and which produces high quality images that are very useful in planning programmes and virtual surgery for dental implants or maxillary reconstruction.

Computerised periodontal probing
Clínica Sicilia has been using Florida Probing, a precision computerised periodontal monitoring system, since 2006. An advanced and effective diagnostic technique for patient follow-up.
Modern periodontology is based on effective monitoring of periodontal disease activity during patient follow-up. The most reliable method to detect areas of periodontal activity is the comparison of consecutive precision measurements (PROBES). In order to achieve this goal the University of Florida (USA) has developed a computerised periodontal probing system called FLORIDA PROBE.
Its introduction as a standard protocol in our clinic has required a large investment, the development of our own technology in Asturias (a mobile unit with energy autonomy and wireless connection) and many hours of training for our clinical team.
The system’s software indicates, once the patient’s history and a previous examination have been entered, the areas of possible activity, marking with an arrow the areas with changes in probing depth of more than 2 mm between the two examinations. In this way, a better diagnosis of periodontal activity can be made, indicating to the hygienist the areas of greatest risk and/or, in the event of a relapse, detecting it earlier.
Virtual surgery on 3D models
3D planning techniques allow us to perform sophisticated virtual surgery simulations for each case. This technology makes it easier to design the treatment strategy prior to the intervention, and to perform minimally invasive surgery with immediate tooth replacement with maximum functional and aesthetic success. In the images you can see a virtual surgery in which 6 lower teeth will be extracted from the anterior sector and a wisdom molar included (red colour) and 6 implants will be placed simultaneously with microsurgery, which will allow the lower teeth to be replaced immediately.
Aesthetic and functional studies
Meticulous planning of each case allows the best aesthetic and functional results to be achieved, with the least invasiveness, the greatest preservation of hard and soft tissues and the longest duration of the restorations.
