While x-rays are necessary for our doctors to diagnose any required treatment, we understand that they can be somewhat intimidating to patients. Without the proper training, it can be hard to understand what you are looking at. This is why we have invested in intraoral cameras.
With intraoral cameras our doctors are able to show you real-time images inside your mouth. The hand piece is about the size of a dental mirror. With a built-in light source, the intraoral camera serves as a video camera that is able to zoom in on specific areas with 25 times magnification! The images are displayed on the computer or television screen in your room so you are able to personally see what your teeth look like. This makes it possible for you to recognize worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque, and cavities first-hand.
