A visual examination with intraoral pictures helps us communicate clearly with you about your oral health. And it is a complimentary part of your complete evaluation!
We can easily show you any hard-to-spot problems you can’t see when you look in the mirror. The enlarged image from the camera serves as a great magnification tool for both you and your dentist.
The intraoral camera is smaller than the head of a dental mirror. It can capture images and give us a dental history of your teeth.
Even if your mouth looks completely fine to the naked eye, the intraoral camera can reveal a problem as it photographs and magnifies your teeth. There are some things you just can’t see on an X-Ray. This allows us to catch problems before they worsen and make it easier for you to understand why we’ve chosen a specific treatment plan for you.
If we have been observing a problem for an extended period of time, we can compare images from visit to visit. The images taken by the Intraoral camera can mean the difference between keeping an eye on an issue and taking action with a procedure.
