Sitting in a dental chair can be unnerving at times. Even worse when you know you have a problem. Most times, all you have to rely on is the opinion of your dentist. With intraoral photos, trust comes as easy as snapping a quick photo. Knowing that, with a click of a button, you can see what’s troubling you. These photos can capture anything from a small cavity causing pain when you eat something cold, the tartar and plaque growing on your teeth, or swollen gums. Even broken teeth and fillings can all be seen by the intraoral camera system. This tiny camera is placed into a device that looks like a large pen. Intraoral photos allow your doctor to show you your teeth on a computer monitor.
The photos help doctor and patient talk in detail about dental desires and needs. It can also help the patient better understand the condition of a filling or any other dental work they may be facing. Fractures can be shown much more easily, as well. All this helps you better understand what might be causing your discomfort. These crystal clear images improve diagnoses and allow us to document your case on a computer screen. Images can be stored for future references and comparisons. A print can be made for dental insurance carriers to verify treatment, and with that comes quicker claims processing. Even further, it helps your dentist see what the naked eye just can’t catch. Be sure to visit us and take advantage of this wonderful invention!
