At Philly Dentistry we always stay up to date with the latest in dental technology like the intraoral cameras to improve our patient’s treatment. These cameras allow us to take close-up photos of your teeth to ensure we are giving you the best treatment plan with the goal of having a healthier mouth.
How exactly does an intraoral camera improve the treatment of a patient? There are two factors that weigh in when it comes advanced technology. The first being that it makes it easier to get insurance companies to approve treatment by seeing the actual problem and second it gives you a close-up view of any dental problem you may have.
What does an intraoral camera see? With intraoral cameras developing over the years each time getting better picture quality. At the beginning these cameras were big and bulky which made it hard to move from operatory to operatory. Today we have one in every operatory that is hand-held and much smaller than the older ones. This powerful camera can detect dental issues that the dentist may not be able to see at first. By taking close up photos of the patients’ teeth you are able to show them exactly what you are looking for and you can show them with real photos how it is so important to go to the dentist for your regular cleaning’s checkups.
Another great use of the intraoral camera is the ability to take great photos of any chipped or cracked tooth. The reason why it’s important is because the doctor can then see any progression of the crack or chipped so they know what the next steps will be to get the patient healthy again. Having these photos also really help when it comes to submitting to the insurance company which our treatment coordinators do for all our patients.
It’s important to use the latest in technology especially when it comes to dentistry. Your smile and teeth are some of the first things people notice when you meet and you can’t make a first impression twice.
