Just as it is with any other field of medicine, technology is changing the way dentists perform their jobs as well. Advanced surgical techniques, futuristic laser procedures, same-day implants and many, many other aspects of dental care have rapidly evolved over the last few years.
One such example we would like to take a further look at is an intraoral camera. This device has nearly limitless oral care applications from checkups to major surgery. The versatility of its design and function makes this piece of equipment a must have for many of today's modern dental professionals. Here are a few ways it can help with your dental health:
Improves Exams and Diagnosis
An intraoral camera is a tiny digital camera which can be placed inside the patients' mouth to take incredible, high-definition pictures at any and all directions. These cameras can be positioned and maneuvered in such a way as to see every possible angle of not only an individual tooth but of the entire mouth. This is so much more effective in performing an exam on the patient, as well as discovering what exactly their problem may be.
Improves Patient Care and Treatment
In addition to the advantages it offers in initial exams and analysis, intraoral cameras are also indispensable in treating various dental conditions. Long gone are the days of the dentist holding a long mirror in the back of your mouth to get a quick, unsteady look at something. Now, with the help of this device, your doctor can get a full and complete view of your mouth from any angle. This gives them a much better idea for how to go in and take care of your problem.
