During a dental exam, we learn a lot of valuable information about your current oral health. The key is to share these details with you so that you’re part of the process, from diagnosis to treatment. One way we do that at Boss Dentistry is by using intraoral cameras.
Intraoral means inside your mouth, and the tiny digital camera captures real-time images that we share with you on your chairside monitor. During your exam, we move the camera over your teeth so we can show you areas of concern that we need to address.
It’s one thing to be told you have a cavity that needs to be filled, and it’s another to see the decay with your own eyes. Our Bridgeton area dental patients appreciate that we use intraoral cameras to inform and educate them about their oral health.
We can also save still images to your patient record for future reference or to send to specialists or your insurance company with your permission.
