Intraoral camera technology allows us to enhance the patients understanding of their diagnosis. In the past, dentist may have struggled in providing a clear understanding to patients who have just received a standard mirror/visual examination. The intraoral camera lets us zoom in on problem areas and share clearly defined, enlarged images to the patient while explaining their situation. This also allows us to more clearly identify the early stages of potential problems such a periodontal disease and tooth decay. These images can be save to a patient files and shared with the patient or other specialists regarding treatment.
