Intraoral camera is slowly invading the dental industry because of its less invasive nature, it is able to uncover problems and any other dental issues you possibly might have. The procedure cuts the process half in time, reduces pain and discomfort on the part of the patient, and saves a patient´s teeth along the process.
Using cameras to navigate the oral cavity of a patient, a dentist can easily detect problems without having the patient open his mouth for a number of hours. This great dental advancement makes a dental visit more comfortable and encouraging.
Detects Dental Problems in its Early Stages
One main reason why people choose to skip dental visits is the uncomfortable and anxious feeling of opening your mouth and having the dentist poke through it. Additionally, some dental procedures need to be done for a couple of sessions, which makes it even scarier.
An intraoral camera is not only less invasive, but can be helpful to detect oral health problems at the onset. It can be used to identify possible dental health problems that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Apart from that, having an oral problem detected early on will prevent major damages to your teeth.
Superior Treatment Accuracy and Can Be Used As a Tool to Educate Patients
Aside from detecting an oral condition in its early stages, an intraoral camera comes with other features that make it more functional. It can be outfitted with a magnifier to enhance dental probing or am LED light for a better visual clarity. These features make treatment better than the conventional means which is done scrupulously.
More than the diagnostic benefits, an intraoral camera can be used to help patients understand the condition of their teeth. Dentists sometimes find it hard to explain to their patients and the apparatus can be used to educate them comfortably.
