The proper diagnosis of existing dental conditions is crucial to long-term health so much effort is put into the identification and root cause of the disease. It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. When you are making crucial decisions about your dental care, a picture can be invaluable. The intraoral camera is a device that allows our team at Quince Orchard Dental Care to take images from inside the mouth, to be reflected on the screen, and it helps in the diagnosis of disease. Looking in a mirror, you see only one side of your teeth. Now, with intraoral cameras, you can see what your dentist sees. You can literally “see” what your dentist is talking about when planning cosmetic or restorative work. It allows the dentist and the dental team to look closely at the condition of the teeth. The image can be instantly brought up on a screen, so that everyone can deliberate on the findings, and the same image will be used to educate the patient about his condition. Images obtained from an intraoral camera can also be saved and kept for record purposes.
