| Our office, committed to being on the cutting edge of technology has installed a digital imaging system. This video imaging system allows us to capture multiple images varying from full facial views to close up views of a single tooth. This new technology allows our patients to see their mouths as we see them.
The intra oral camera is an important addition to our armamentarium. The camera is a tiny camera designed to show images in hard-to-reach areas and in low light. The camera is actually the size of a pen.
The images identified by the camera are magnified and displayed on a television monitor. When we see an area in the mouth that need closer inspection, the video image can be “freeze-framed” for a better look.
The camera can also be used to teach patients about their dental condition, and to monitor the progress of their treatment.
