The Benefits of Intraoral Cameras
Modern dentistry has made great progress when it comes to the ability to better diagnose any problems inside their patient’s mouths. One of their biggest technology strides has been the use of intraoral dental cameras, also known as “cameras on a wand”, which gives a trained dentist a much better view of their patient’s teeth and gums.
This special technology can also aid you, as the patient, in better understanding the condition of your teeth, and provide your dentist with more treatment options.
These intraoral cameras provide the unique opportunity for a dentist to take intraoral photos that are invaluable for the purposes of insurance and dental records. These intraoral and smile series photos open the previously closed door that now allows the patient to take a more active role in their own dental treatments.“cameras on a wand”
What Does The Intraoral Dental Camera Allow Us To See?
This technology allows the patient to view the following problem areas right along with their dentist:
- Worn teeth
- Plaque and tartar
- Gum/periodontal disease
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Broken or missing fillings
- Exact areas of decay/cavities
The before and after photos are fantastic, and they are an invaluable tool for those considering restorative or cosmetic treatments for your teeth. Intraoral dental cameras are nothing short amazing for what they bring to the modern dental technology table!
