One of the best ways we can partner with you in your oral healthcare is to help you understand your examination, diagnosis, and treatment. A valuable tool we use to accomplish our patient-education goals is the intra-oral camera.
This small, handheld video camera is about the same size as a dental mirror (or an oversized pen) and comes with a disposable plastic sheath for contamination prevention. We use it to take actual pictures of your teeth with up to 25 times magnification and project them onto a screen to review with you. We can also use it to give you a video tour of your entire mouth so that you can see things such as plaque deposits, decay, worn teeth, and broken or missing fillings. Lastly, we will print pertinent images for your patient file for future reference and can even print images for you to take home.
