'A picture is worth a thousand words' as the saying goes and we firmly believe that intra-oral cameras are worth even more!
People seldom have a clear idea of the actual status of their dental health. Even with lights and mirrors, it's tough to see anything but the front of your own teeth, or segments of the shadowed back and side areas. But intraoral cameras have changed all that. Now you can sit comfortably back in the chair while the dentist guides a handy, pen-sized camera into your mouth. Covered with a disposable plastic sheath for contamination prevention, it takes a video of the inside of your mouth and transmits the images to a computer that enlarges the colour images and sends them to a TV screen. Almost instantaneously, both you and your dentist are able to view together every last detail of your oral health.
It's not necessarily pleasant to come face to face with your own dental condition. But it's important to do so as the camera may reveal the early stages of potentially serious problems with your teeth and gums, helping you make an informed decision about your treatment options.
