One of the most useful advances in dental technology is intraoral cameras. Intraoral cameras have changed the way we work with our patients and help them understand their oral health. Our dentists use a small, pen-sized handheld digital camera that lights up the inside of your mouth. As we move it over your teeth, you will see the images at the same time on your chairside monitor.
If we detect a problem, we can show you where and what it is and how the treatment will benefit you. Now instead of us telling you that you have a cavity, you can see the dark spot on your tooth and understand why you need to have it filled.
We can also save still images of what we see and add them to your patient history for future reference.
