5 Reasons To Choose A Plantation Dentist Who Uses An Intraoral Camera
The benefits of an intraoral camera are vast and varied. This small, handheld device can help identify oral health issues that may otherwise go undetected thanks to its ability to capture highly detailed images of oral tissues, which can be used to diagnose and treat conditions with pinpoint accuracy.
What types of oral issues and diseases can an intraoral camera detect?
The list is long and includes everything from tooth decay and gum disease to oral cancer. In fact, intraoral cameras are often used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools, such as x-rays, to get a comprehensive picture of a patient's oral health.
In terms of who benefits most from an intraoral camera session, typically, people who are experiencing symptoms of an oral health issue, such as pain, swelling, or bleeding, are ideal. However, your dentist may also recommend an intraoral camera session if you're due for a routine cleaning and checkup to ensure that your oral health is in good condition.
What happens during an intraoral camera examination?
Using the camera wand, which is about the size of a pen, our dental professional will move the wand throughout your mouth. This will ensure that the camera is able to produce close-up images of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues. These images will be displayed on a nearby monitor, allowing us to get a clear view of any potential problems.
How long does an intraoral examination take and is there any pain involved?
Intraoral examinations are quick and easy, typically taking just a few minutes to complete. And, because the camera wand is so small and non-invasive, there's no need for any numbing agents or local anesthesia, so you can expect the entire process to be comfortable and pain-free.
