An intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped device we can use to capture very highly-detailed images of your teeth and gums we can then show you on a nearby monitor. These will make it much easier for our team to spot potential dental issues, plus you’ll literally gain a whole new perspective on your smile. You’ll finally be able to see what your dentist is talking about, allowing you to better understand and appreciate your dental care.
Digital X-rays give us the ability to catch dental problems before they are even visible to the naked eye, and they are a vast improvement over traditional, film-based dental X-rays in every way. They can create crystal clear images almost instantly, they don’t require toxic chemicals to be developed, and they also expose our patients to 80% LESS radiation in the process. And, the images can even be displayed on a chairside monitor for you to go over with your dentist.
Finding tooth decay as early as possible is one of the most important things we do in dentistry, and thanks to our cavity detection system, this task is now easier than ever. It uses a beam of light to scan the enamel, and it can detect even the smallest indications of thinning, ones that would be typically missed by a traditional exam. With this information, we can quickly intervene and prevent many cavities from developing in the first place.
