Get a closer look with an intra-oral camera
Dentistry is a detail-oriented practice, and the more information a dentist has, the better their understanding of your oral health. An intra-oral camera is an invaluable tool that allows dentists to capture and enlarge images from a patient’s mouth. It will help them get a better look at problems in your mouth and allows you to see what the dentist can see. Diem Do, DDS Smile In Style utilizes an intra-oral camera for examinations at his practice to detect difficult to spot conditions as they develop.
Early detection is key
Early intervention will provide the best results for your restoration, whether its gum disease, worn enamel, or tiny fissures in your tooth. An intra-oral camera allows your dentist to perform an oral examination that can save your teeth before it is too late.
Intra-oral cameras also allow your dentist to keep a close watch on areas that may develop a problem, and capture images to compare with future visits. It can help them diagnose shifting teeth, oral cancer, bruxism, and other stealthy oral health issues that they miss. It can also help them adjust crowns, dentures, and other dental restorations for a more comfortable fit in your mouth.
Care you can trust
If you have had a bad experience with a dentist pushing unnecessary fillings or crowns, you may have difficulty trusting a diagnosis. An inter-oral camera can give you a high-definition view of an area that needs treatment and make an educated decision on the treatment plan that feels right. Better yet, a digital image of your issues can help you secure payment from your dental insurance.
