For a closer look at your teeth, our dentist, Dr. Fiona Tavakoli, and our team utilize an intraoral camera. This allows us to take up-close and high definition images of possible dental health concerns and determine their severity with more accuracy. To learn more about our intraoral camera in Oceanside, California, please call North Coast Dental Excellence today at 760-941-1414 for more information.
An intraoral camera is a small, hand-held camera used by dentists to get a close-up view of the teeth and gums. This type of diagnostic equipment is very useful in detecting problems such as tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health issues. Intraoral cameras are also helpful in getting a better view of hard-to-reach areas in the mouth, as they can be easily maneuvered to reach all areas of the mouth without causing discomfort. They are safe and easy to use and offer many benefits for both dentists and patients in diagnosing and treating developing dental problems.
Intraoral cameras can be used for both diagnostic and treatment purposes. For example, an intraoral camera may be used to take X-rays or to provide detailed images of the mouth for dental procedures such as crowns or bridges. They are also excellent educational tools and are helpful in providing patients with a better view of their own teeth and gums, allowing you to understand exactly what is happening in your mouth and make informed decisions about your care.
The high-quality images captured by intraoral cameras can also be sent to other dentists, specialists and insurance companies as needed so that you can receive the care you need.
