Do you ever wonder about what might be happening in your mouth? At RM Advanced Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we use intraoral cameras to more closely examine areas of your mouth that are difficult to reach. In addition to helping our dentist make a more accurate diagnosis, it also doubles as an educational tool.
Intraoral cameras are small, pen-shaped tools that are used to capture detailed color images of the inside of your mouth. This imaging device is easily maneuverable, so our dentist can see areas of your mouth that are extremely difficult to examine visually. This makes it easier for him to diagnose problems like tooth decay, periodontal disease and tooth damage.
The captured images are projected onto a nearby screen, where they are clearly visible to both you and Dr. Macedo. This allows you to see exactly what our dentist sees and understand what is happening in your mouth. The intraoral camera also helps in a follow-up after a treatment has been completed so that you can see the final result. Photos captured by an intraoral camera can also be sent to other dentists and specialists as well as to your dental insurance provider as needed.
