Results Of The Fremitus Dental Test 

Fremitus is a term used to describe the vibrations that are created when sound waves travel through tissue. Fremitus is most often used as a tool for diagnosing bone infections, but it can also be used to determine if there’s an infection anywhere in your body. A fremitus dental test can provide valuable insight into how you’re feeling and help your dentist diagnose any problems you may have with your teeth or gums. 

What Is The Fremitus Dental Test? 

The fremitus dental test is a diagnostic tool that measures the vibrations of your teeth. It’s also known as “vibration analysis” or “dental fremitus.” 

The word “fremitus” comes from the Latin word for “to resound,” which means that when you clench your jaw, you’ll hear a rumbling sound in your mouth. This happens because of the way sound travels through bone and tissue it echoes off surfaces and bounces back into your ears with varying degrees of intensity depending on what kind of material they’re hitting along their path (i.e., hard vs soft). 

The decibel level measured during this test indicates how much damage has been done to any given tooth: higher decibel levels mean more decay; lower ones mean less decay or no decay at all! 

The Fremitus Dental Test Work

The fremitus test is a simple procedure that uses a probe to measure the vibration of your teeth. The probe is placed against your teeth, and then vibrates at a very high frequency. This causes the teeth to vibrate and produce sound waves, which are picked up by the probe and sent to a receiver. 

The receiver converts the sound waves into an electronic signal, which is then sent to a computer for analysis. The computer will display the results on-screen, usually as a graph. 

Perform A Fremitus Dental Test

The Fremitus Dental Test, also known as the Fremitus Probe, is a simple procedure that can be performed in your dentist’s office. The probe is placed against your upper molars and lower incisors and then moved up and down to test for any defects or cavities in the tooth enamel. If you hear a clicking sound when moving the probe over your teeth, this indicates that there is no problem with that particular tooth. If there are no clicks heard when moving the probe over that area of your mouth, then it could mean that there is some sort of issue with either decay or an abscess forming inside or around that tooth–and further investigation would need to take place before determining whether or not treatment will be necessary (if at all). 

A Fremitus Dental Test

If you are experiencing any of the following: 

  • A toothache. 
  • A dental abscess. 
  • A dental infection. 
  • A toothache that is getting worse, and not improving with antibiotics or painkillers, then it’s time to schedule an appointment at your local dentist’s office as soon as possible so they can perform a fremitus test on your teeth and gums in order to determine if there is a problem present in them!
