Dental technology continues to advance to serve the dentist and patient better. At our practice, it is our goal to focus our attention on providing top-of-the-line and personalized dental for patients in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. For the best dental care, we use intraoral cameras to get an in-depth look at the appearance of a patient’s teeth and gums during exams.
What is an intraoral camera?
In short, an intraoral camera is a tool used by dentists to examine a patient’s mouth in the most detailed way possible. The device which may resemble a large pen uses a camera to high-resolution footage of a patient’s teeth and gums in real time. The footage is view on a high-tech monitor for both the dentist and patient to view during an exam.
Benefits of an Intraoral Camera
The incredible technology features of the intraoral camera give the dentist the best ability to view a patient’s teeth and gums during an exam. The high-quality LED light, rotating head, and high-powered magnifying capabilities allow a dentist to see the inner workings of a patient’s mouth with extreme detail. The dentist has a greater ability to accurately examine a patient’s mouth during a routine visit resulting in premium dental care every visit.
For patients, the use of an intraoral camera allows them to see exactly what the dentist sees in color and in real time. It advances the communication ability between the dentist and patient because the image is more precise than that of an x-ray and the dentist can show the patient directly what the issue being discussed. Overall, patients learn more about their oral health and can make informed and confident treatment decisions with the best knowledge possible.
