A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

This adage is proven true many times each day in offices equipped with an intra-oral camera. Prior to the development of this technology, some patients found it challenging to understand problems such as dental decay and periodontal disease. Now, it's possible to display, pause, and zoom in during a video examination of the problem area, so that you can see it for yourself --- all in color and crystal clear.

Advantages of an Intra-Oral Camera

* An intra-oral camera makes you more of an active partner in your dental treatment, enabling you to see what a dentist sees --- an especially important benefit when additional treatments need to be discussed, or when treatment options must be explained --- so that you can make informed decisions. * You may be more comfortable asking questions and better able to understand a treatment option or oral hygiene concern when you can actually see it. * Because it gives you the real-world picture of your dental hygiene, the intra-oral camera is ideally suited to show you techniques for improving your oral health and hygiene habits. * With its powerful magnification (much superior to the naked eye), it reveals the early stages of maladies such as gum disease and cavities. * The images can be captured and reexamined later, to show you changes in your oral health and hygiene or how a multi-phase treatment is progressing. * Furthermore, it can provide insurance companies with the proof they require to approve a needed treatment.
