The intra-oral camera broadcasts images for both the patient and doctor to see. Instantaneously the images are sent to a computer screen so that both the patient and doctor can review your oral health together. This wonderful new technology allows you to relax in your chair while simultaneously observing a real-time image of the inside of your mouth magnified beyond normal size on an adjacent computer monitor. Not only does this make it simple to see and understand what is happening in your mouth, but it makes it simple for us to keep incredibly accurate records from one visit to the next.
These intra-oral cameras not only increase the dentist-patient communication, but can also aid in insurance claim reimbursement, by including color images along with traditional radiographs.
