An intraoral video camera, one of the latest advances in dentistry today, is a camera used as a scanning device during oral examinations. The intraoral camera allows both the dentist and the patient to view a magnified picture of the teeth and gums on a television monitor. The camera enables us to see the health status of oral tissues, broken or cracked fillings, infections and more. Patients are also able to see before-and-after treatment pictures that allow them to better understand and become more involved in their oral health care.
Have you ever heard the expression that "a picture is worth a thousand words"? We know this is true because we have seen the reactions on our patients faces when they see their teeth and gums up-close for the first time. It's amazing how a simple video camera can change the way you think about dental care, but it really does work!
We believe so strongly in patient education that we have incorporated this camera into our examination process as part of our commitment to offering you the highest quality, most innovative dental care. Please feel free to stop by our office located just north of Greenwood, Indiana in Indianapolis on US 31 to preview this piece of equipment or to schedule an examination to see firsthand how helpful this new technology is to your overall oral health.
