Why To Choose An Intraoral Camera? Posted on 15 Jun 09:00

X-rays are an excellent way to diagnose oral health issues; However while x-rays provide vauluable information that we can't get from any other source, they can't show you everything that's going on in your mouth.That's why we have invested in an intraoral camera - a highly advanced piece of diagnostic equipment that allows you to see what we see inside your mouth.Using the intraoral camera, we can examine areas of your mouth that x-rays cannot show.

An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your teeth and gums. These images allow us to make a more accurate diagnosis and develop a better treatment plan for each patient. A faster, more accurate diagnosis means less chair time for you! It also allows you to see everything we see and know everything we know! 

Many patients struggle to understand why they need complicated dental procedures when they aren't experiencing any pain or see no visual evidence that the procedure is needed. Intraoral cameras allow patients to see the state of their mouths in real-time rather than being shown difficult-to-understand x-rays or listening to the explanation of the dentist. Instead, patients can see the doctor's diagnosis with their own eyes.

Intraoral cameras are roughly the same size as a pen and are fitted with a camera and light. The camera then transmits the images to a computer screen or television monitor. You'll be able to see right away a fractured tooth, abscess, or cavity. In the case of the intraoral camera, a picture may be worth more than a thousand words!
