Intraoral Cameras Offer More Precise Care
At Smile Montreal, we are committed to providing the best possible care. Drs. Charles and Patrick Casey work hard to deliver timely and accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans for every procedure they perform. To offer the most accurate treatment, they proudly use innovative intraoral cameras at their Montreal, QC, practice. These special imaging systems take incredibly detailed pictures of your teeth and soft tissues. Your dentist can then use these images to detect the earliest signs of dental issues and involve you in your treatment planning. With early diagnoses, we can help prevent serious and long-term damage, as well as begin treatment for any conditions as soon as possible.
What Are Intraoral Cameras?
Intraoral cameras are small devices that are similar to a toothbrush in size and shape. This technology can give Drs. Casey access to the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. The cameras can capture digital photos of areas that would otherwise be very hard to examine. Your dentist can display these images on a chair-side computer, zooming in to obtain an incredibly detailed view. These scans and photos can also be saved to your dental record for future reference and easy referral if you must see a specialist.
How Do We Use Intraoral Cameras?
We frequently use intraoral cameras during our preventive exams and cleanings. After a visual examination of your teeth, your dentist will often take pictures of your molars, which are harder to see. He may also employ an intraoral camera to perform an oral cancer screening or to look for the early signs of gum disease. These diagnostic tools can be invaluable in identifying specific oral concerns such as cavities if you are experiencing dental sensitivity or discomfort.
In addition to improving your care, intraoral cameras ensure that we can easily archive and access the images to monitor chronic conditions.
The Benefits of Intraoral Cameras
Our advanced imaging devices offer numerous benefits, such as:
- Easier maneuverability: Because this dental technology is easy for our team to manipulate, your exam will be very quick and comfortable.
- High-quality images: Your dentist can detect very small signs of decay, tiny cracks, and other imperfections. Accordingly, he can diagnose dental conditions very early before large cavities or widespread gum disease develops.
- Instant and accurate: Drs. Casey can display these images in real time, pointing out various concerns and explaining how they could affect your long-term oral health. You will not have to rely on diagrams or verbal descriptions. Rather, you will see exactly what your dentist sees. In this way, we can improve communication and make your dental care a more engaging experience. You will also be able to make more informed decisions about your own treatment.
In addition to improving your level of care, intraoral cameras ensure that we can easily archive and access the images to monitor chronic conditions. We can evaluate the development of any concerns and provide the most timely and effective treatment possible. If needed, we can also forward your dental scans and images to specialists, keeping in close communication about your oral health.
