People seldom have a clear idea of the actual status of their dental health. Even with lights and mirrors, a patient can't see what the dentist can - that is, until now.

We use intraoral cameras, so when you visit the dentist, you can sit comfortably back in the chair and get ready for the show. The dentist or hygienist will insert a pen-sized, camera-tipped wand into your mouth. Covered with a disposable plastic sheath for contamination prevention, the wand simply takes a video of the inside of your mouth and transmits the images via cable to a computing unit. The computing unit enlarges the full-color images and sends them to a TV screen that you can comfortably view from the dental chair. Aha! There it is - your mouth on the screen. Your dentist can point out problem areas and explain their recommendations for treatment, enabling you to become an informed partner in your dental care instead of a clueless bystander.

The Benefits of Intraoral Cameras

Seeing your dental problems may seem overwhelming at first but consider the experience the first step toward a healthier, fresher smile. The camera may reveal the early stages of potentially serious problems, allowing you the opportunity to prevent small problems before they escalate. This is especially helpful with gum disease and conditions that cause damage without causing pain. The camera's honest survey can also show you how your regular home hygiene routine is paying off. The dentist can recommend ways to improve your homecare based on their findings.

If you want to learn more about the technologies that enhance patient care in our office, call us today. We're always happy to explain the new innovations in dentistry and how they can improve your dental experience.
