Intra Oral Cameras
One of the ways we gather the data we need to assess your dental health is by using intra oral cameras. It’s an entirely painless way of checking the structures inside your mouth.
An intra oral camera looks like a long pen. It’s a camera, so it’s used to take pictures of the inside of your mouth. The images taken are in high resolution, and you can see the images in real time on our computer monitor. It’s an accurate tool that enables us to make better diagnoses.
Advantages of Using Intra Oral Cameras
As you can also see what’s going on inside your mouth in real time, our dentists are able to explain what’s going on so that you can follow and understand what they’re describing. You’re also more confident that the info obtained shows what’s truly going on inside your mouth. The guesswork is reduced, and the chances of making a mistake are minimized.
The images taken by intra oral cameras also help you make a claim when you have dental insurance. The images serve as concrete proof that you really do need the dental solutions we propose, as the problems in your mouth are very real. You have the pictures to prove it, so the insurance company is less likely to deny your claim.
Using the intra oral camera is actually a fun way to help educate you regarding the state of your dental health. You can see for yourself what happens when you don’t brush your teeth. You can see the state of the dental cavities you have, and you’re better able to appreciate the need for dental solutions such as dental fillings and general cleanings.
