Intra Oral Camera – Courtice – Oshawa
The intraoral camera is a new technology in dentistry which gives patients at King Town Dental the opportunity to get a close-up view of their own mouths. With a built-in light source, the intraoral camera, shaped like a large pencil, reveals high-quality photos and video and allows you to see exactly what the dentist sees.
The intraoral camera permits Dr. Bedi to give you a virtual tour and can zoom in on individual teeth to show cavities, gum disease, cracked teeth, and broken fillings. After having treated a dental condition, the intraoral camera lets you see the changes up-close and the resulting beautiful healthy teeth.
The most important change that intraoral cameras bring to dentistry is that patients can now have a better understanding of what the dentist is talking about. Often times, when a dentist shows you x-rays, they are quite difficult to understand; but with the intraoral camera, you can follow your dentist’s explanations with clear photo and video.
The images can be easily printed, or they can be stored on your permanent dental record. They can also be emailed to specialists and sent to insurance companies. Intraoral cameras are a dynamic diagnostic tool for viewing different angles of the mouth, which give patients a better understanding of what the dentist is doing. The more you know about your mouth, the more able you are to make good choices for your dental care. At King Town Dental, we utilize technology to assist clients who want to be an active participant in their own dental care.
Ask your dental hygienist for a complete tour of your mouth. Then, we’ll immediately print a photograph of any area(s) you would like. A picture is worth a thousand words.
