At present, many dental acts involve operations carried out without visual monitoring, for example in mouth surgery or during the course of a dental root canal treatment. While this kind of operation is in progress, the dental surgeon is guided by his tactile sense alone. Only the traditional pre and post-operative radiographic examinations are possible. Waiting for a least ten minutes is the time required for these radiographs. This article describes a new material giving the dentist the means of a real time visual monitoring for the intervention being carried out. The device implemented in our laboratory is a dental fluoroscopy set with low level X-ray doses, small field, suitable resolution, and primarily usable for kinetic images acquisition. This dental fluoroscopic device consists of : - a special X-ray generator (low exposure and collimated flow), - a fiber optics bundle and its X-ray / visible converter, - an image intensifier associated to a charge coupled device (CCD), - and finally, a digital processing device for image treatment and display. A preliminary/ dosimetric study completes this work.
