The Intraoral Camera Is A Handy Piece Of Technology
Just because you aren’t in pain doesn’t mean you don’t have a dental problem. But as your dentist in Watertown, we can detect concerns early on with the intraoral camera. We can also give you a “tour” of your current smile and give you an idea of what changes are possible.
About The Intraoral Camera
It’s a tiny camera that is attached to the end of a wand. From there, it can easily be placed in your mouth to capture a full view of gums, teeth, and tissue. These live images are streamed to a chairside monitor, making it possible for us to explain what’s happening in your mouth. The camera is equipped with LED lighting and a magnifier for optimal viewing. This technology will help you make more informed decisions for your smile, which will go a long way in ensuring your overall satisfaction with your treatment(s) of choice.
Examples Of The Images We Can Show You
- Oral cancer – If we believe you have oral cancer, we can quickly send the appropriate digital files to your doctor.
- Gingivitis – We can highlight parts of your gums that have gingivitis (early gum disease) or full gum disease. From there, we’ll work with you to form a plan so you can heal and attain the very best oral health possible.
- Lesions – This can include cankers.
- Failing restorations – Although many people believe dental restorations don’t ever have to be replaced, that’s just not the case. However, with excellent home care, you can get the maximum life out of them.
- Fractured teeth – Teeth can sustain this kind of damage from grinding, chewing hard foods, or a sports injury.
- Plaque buildup – Showing you what’s happening will encourage you to brush and floss more thoroughly and make sure you get to all your regular appointments.
