People seldom have a clear idea as to the health of their mouth. They are just not able to see inside.
Our office uses intraoral cameras to take pictures of their teeth and project them on a television monitor. The dentist can then point out the problem areas and explain his recommendations for treatment.
Many times, we find beginning problems and are able to resolve them before they become more extensive and expensive. In our experience, this camera diminishes the fear and apprehension that usually goes along with dentistry. Once people see the problem and get a clear description of the necessary treatment, they are much more at ease with the process.
