Advanced Imaging and Diagnostics
The more precise and accurate your dental exams and diagnostic visits are, the more effectively we can keep an eye on and protect your smile for life. That’s why we emphasize routine checkups and cleanings as part of your regular oral health care, and it’s why we utilize advanced imaging technology like the digital intraoral camera. The camera allows us to see areas of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues that we couldn’t see clearly otherwise, and the process is simple, comfortable, and non-invasive.
The benefits of a digital intraoral camera
- Improved accuracy – Digital images produced by the intraoral camera can be magnified significantly, while the images retain their high definition and clarity. This allows us to more accurately spot early signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, and other oral health concerns.
- Faster dental exams – The ability to see more of your smile with ease and with ultimate clarity means that we can thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and oral tissues faster. This helps reduce the amount of time you have to spend in the dental chair during each of your routine checkup and cleaning appointments.
- More involvement in your care – When using an intraoral camera, we can project the images directly onto a chairside monitor or computer in the exam room. This allows us to point out areas of concern and educate you about your oral health, and gives you the opportunity to take a more significant part in your dental treatment.
- More efficient record-keeping – Images that are taken during your regular checkups and diagnostic exams are an important part of your permanent dental records. By utilizing digital imaging, we can more conveniently store your records, or share them with trusted oral health experts in case specialized treatment is required.
