For years, dentists did their best to explain oral health concerns and treatment options to patients using just their words and mirrors. This created a serious barrier in educating patients about necessary dental care. Our state-of-the-art intraoral camera has broken down that barrier. With these high quality intraoral photos, patients are able to glimpse their smile from our dentist’s perspective. We use intraoral photos to show patients just what we’re talking about, and help them make the best decision for their ongoing oral health plan.
Unlike traditional film x-rays that used high levels of radiation, took time to develop, and produced low resolution images, digital x-rays are easily captured using up to 90% less radiation and immediately visible on chairside computer monitors. We use these images to monitor dental development, examine any unexpected changes, and provide the best possible care for any oral health concerns. The digital scans are easily stored and compared year after year, and they expedite even the most advanced treatment options since they can be instantly sent to labs, insurance companies, and specialists.
