Sometimes it is difficult for patients to fully understand the condition of their teeth in the same way the dentist does – using an intraoral camera is a state of the art dental technical device that really helps you see for yourself exactly what is happening in your mouth.
That way patients can see for themselves what is going on with their teeth and so can make informed decisions about what to do. We can’t imagine life without them now!
What are Intra oral cameras?
• A small digital camera that looks like a pen
• Connects to our computer and a large TV screen that you watch as we investigate your mouth
• It helps our patients to more easily understand the condition of their teeth
Advantages of IntraOral Cameras
- Instant: you can instantly see what we see as we investigate your teeth, and also what we do when we work on them
- Accurate: we can take a picture of the inside of your mouth for a bigger and better look, and it really helps to track any changes over time
- Easy referrals or second opinions: if we need to get another opinion from a specialist, we can easily take a photo and email it to them
- Memory jogger: we store these images on your dental record to compare back to later – a great way to really track erosion, staining
- Better planning: together we can discuss the best treatment plan for you as we go – you then decide how to proceed
- Learn more: it is a great educational tool to show you exactly what is going on in your mouth… rather than our dentists merely trying to describe it to you in words!
A picture is worth a thousand words
Our patients love our Intra oral cameras – you get to see first hand and up close the state of your teeth, including any problems such as cracked teeth, decay, worn-out or defective fillings, bleeding gums and plaque.
Great to take away a snap shot home with you
Often we’ll print a copy off for a patient, for instance when we need the patient to monitor any changes at home… so if there are any changes you know to come back in and see us. If you have a condition you are concerned about, want to record or research it further, or simply want to explain it to your partner, then these pictures are invaluable.
