Top Reasons Intraoral Cameras Improve Your Oral Health
Posted on 1/15/2019 by Frank Sciabica
Have you ever wondered why we sometimes stick a thermometer sized tube inside your mouth, and then turn away to stare at a computer monitor while fiddling with it, instead of watching you? It isn't out of rudeness or lack of compassion, but rather that technology has advanced to the point that our own eyes are not always the best for probing your mouth. For those deep, precise examinations of every nook and cranny inside of your mouth, we break out the intraoral camera. With Great Power Comes Great Resolution One of the major reasons why we use these cameras is because they are adroit at maneuvering inside of your mouth and revealing what they see, far better than our own fingers, tiny mirror, and eyeballs. With an intraoral camera, we can check for a suspected fracture and see exactly how deep it runs down the tooth, and immediately begin preparing our treatment plan. Rather than press around uncomfortably on diseased or injured gums, we can just point the camera in the direction and see exactly where the disease is, what stage it is at, and anything that may not have been apparent during the routine exam. This saves you time and comfort, and allows us to focus our attention on providing care, when before we would still have to spend more time diagnosing the root of the issue. Lastly, it helps provide comprehensive care, by allowing us to see places we might normally not check on first pass, detect issues too small to be easily seen with the naked eye, and provide an easier way to document and keep records of discoveries during your care, for this and future visits.. All in all, intraoral cameras are a marvelous piece of technology that has revolutionized and streamlined oral care, allowing us to see patients and treat them more efficiently during every visit. If you are interested in knowing more about the device or would like to confirm it will be in use during your next visit, give us a call and speak to us about the tools we use to provide the best possible care for you and your mouth!...
