Technological advancements in the dental industry have given us innovative instruments to help detect problems earlier, make treatments more comfortable, and allow greater precision.
At Prosthodontics & Implant Dental Center, we offer services that involve advanced intraoral imaging. This tiny camera grants us sight of even the smallest details and issues, to detect and diagnose potentially serious problems, such as oral cancer, earlier than ever.
What Are Intraoral Cameras?
Intraoral cameras are tiny high definition cameras, about the size of a pen, that connect to a large monitor so you can see what your dentist is doing while they are doing it during your examination. This device is essential in patient education because they are able to see and better understand their mouth. Our team can now simultaneously show and tell patients about their oral issues.
There is a small light connected to the intraoral cameras to assist in diagnosing cavities, fractures, and other issues that would otherwise be difficult to see.
What Are the Advantages of Intraoral Cameras?
Immediate Results: You are able to see what your doctor sees in real-time. If we see any issues, we can discuss them at your appointment, rather than having to wait for results to come back.
Precise: Intraoral cameras allow us to capture detailed images of your mouth to monitor and identify any changes over time.
Easy Referrals: If you need to see another specialist, we can easily email the images.
Better Planning: With more details, we are able to determine better treatment plans for your specific needs.
