Intraoral cameras are a fairly new technology used by your Portland OR dentist. There is value in this equipment because it provides the highest-resolution views of your oral cavity. What’s more, that is only one of the benefits.
Intraoral cameras deliver magnifying capabilities of up to 100x zoom. In fact, your dentist at Serene Dentistry can get a very detailed view of your mouth. As a result, a more accurate diagnosis can be made. Since the camera also projects in real-time, you, too, can see what images the dentist is viewing. Therefore, the benefits of using an intraoral camera are great for both dentists and patients. With improved clarity, you can expect to receive a more thorough explanation of what is going on, compared to traditional x-rays.
With this type of advanced diagnostic tool, you will be better equipped to make decisions regarding your treatment. When it comes to detecting problems, nothing compares to viewing oral health issues in real-time.
Furthermore, insurance providers always request proof of a health condition prior to approving coverage. The high-res image gives insurance companies exactly what they need. Intraoral views show everything in detail. This makes the approval process faster and much more efficient.
At Serene Dentistry, our team believes that every dental office should have intraoral cameras. This should be standard equipment. It is necessary to help identify and treat dental issues early before they worsen. Over time, oral health problems can become more painful and costlier to correct.
Even more, there is no greater tool to use to help demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. An intraoral camera allows your dentist in Portland, OR, to show you a rich, detailed image of the problem areas. Also, you can see surfaces you might not be reaching with daily brushing and flossing.
When you come in for your routine visits, we will perform a complete dental exam. During this time, we will use the intraoral camera to evaluate the condition of your mouth. Call Serene Dentistry in Portland, OR today to learn more, or to schedule an appointment.
