Images from a high definition intraoral camera can show tooth decay, visible tooth cracks/craze lines, leaky/defective old fillings/crowns, gum health/disease and several other conditions in the oral cavity. These images enhance the ability of the patient to view these conditions and make an informed decision about his/her own treatment. This allows the patients to participate in their own treatment and positively affect treatment outcome.
The intraoral cameras have advanced lenses placed inside a small head that conveniently takes high definition images in the mouth. These images are conveniently taken during a comprehensive visit exam within 1-2 minutes. Pre and post operative images can also be compared to see the treatment outcomes.
Digital radiography is a type of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. There are several advantages of using digital radiographs.
