An Enhanced View with Intraoral Cameras
Until recently, patients have needed to rely upon the dentist and team’s ability to communicate verbally and using crude drawings to convey the patient’s state of oral health. Now, thanks to a state of the art device called an intraoral camera, you can see for yourself the exact current condition of your mouth The camera takes high resolution photos, and even video, then magnifies these images and displays them on a computer screen in real time, showing you exactly what the dentist sees.
You get an up-close view of your entire mouth revealing cracks, stains, gum recession, cavity formation, gaps, and other anomalies.
The intraoral camera represents the latest in digital imaging, and is rapidly coming to be considered the Standard of Dental Care. Dr. Petinge and his Team have employed the camera since 1996 ;yet another example of their commitment to leading edge dentistry and Best in Class patient care.
Utilizing liquid lens technology the camera delivers crystal clear, detailed images that are non-invasive and pain-free. It is a unique and valuable tool your dentist and hygienist use to enhance patient communication, empowering them to make informed decisions about their care.
The wand-shaped hand piece in which the camera is housed connects wirelessly via USB or docking station.
No longer must patients ‘blindly’ accept treatment they may not fully understand. The intraoral camera, allows you to see with your own eyes what the dentist sees, such as a fractured tooth or a gum line that is starting to recede. Then, you and your dentist can discuss the possible course of action and together choose the course of treatment that is right for you.
