At Elite Smiles Dentistry, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to detect dental problems in their earliest stages, provide customized treatment sooner, and provide long-term protection for your smile. Our intraoral cameras perform all of these functions and more. Intraoral cameras are small, pen-sized tools that use autofocus and light to take high-quality images of your teeth, gums, and the surrounding tissues to look for signs of tooth decay, disease, cracks, cavities, and cancerous lesions that X-rays may not reveal. These images provide us with a better understanding of your oral health and greatly improve your current and future visits.
Benefits of using an intraoral camera include:
- Early detection: Intraoral cameras enlarge images of the teeth to 40+ times their real size, allowing us to zoom in on problem areas and diagnose issues that may have otherwise gone undetected.
- Better patient-team interaction: In addition to diagnosing your smile, we can also use intraoral cameras to display images of your smile and educate you about your oral health, pointing out areas of concern and explaining treatment options.
- Improve record keeping: We can easily print and store the images taken by the intraoral camera, filing them away with your other health information. This allows our dentists and team to track your treatments and progress over the years. We can also submit these photos to boost insurance claims.
