The old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” is so true. In the past, a dentist would check your teeth and then explain their findings in terms that were difficult for some patients to understand. With the aid of this new and exciting camera, our doctors and staff can show you exactly what they are seeing.
Even better, the image is magnified 35 times its normal size and displayed on a flat screen monitor. This dramatically improves our ability to diagnose small cavities, dental fractures and leaking fillings which allows for earlier treatment and the prevention of more serious problems.
For example, the picture above on the right shows a fracture line that a person would not see just looking in the mouth or on an x-ray. The intra-oral camera is also great for before & after photos as well as supporting documentation for insurance claims. You have to see it to believe it.
