Advancements in technology have provided the industry with tools that help assist our staff in detecting problems at early stages. Here at Oak Street Family Dental, we are proud to provide procedures involving intraoral imaging. The intraoral camera allows the possibility not only to detect even the smallest of details but also helps to identify defects that can lead to problems later.
What Are Intraoral Cameras?
Intraoral cameras are small digital cameras that are about the size of a pen that have the capability to connect to a large screen to show real-time images as a mouth is being examined. This device helps educate our patients by providing them with information allowing them easily to understand the condition of their oral health. Attached to the intraoral camera is a bright LED that helps to diagnose cavities, fractures, or other defects that would be hard to see with the naked eye.
What Are the Advantages of Intraoral Cameras?
Immediate Results: with intraoral imaging you can see exactly what the doctor sees while inspecting your teeth, it is also possible for the patient to see what the doctor does when working on your teeth.
Precise: We have the ability to capture more details by taking high-quality photos of the inside of your mouth. This also helps to identify any changes to your oral conditions over time.
Easy Referrals: If another opinion is needed from a specialist, the photos taken from the intraoral camera can easily be emailed.
Better Planning: With more detailed results it makes it easier to identify the best treatment plan for your exact dental needs.
