Have you ever wanted to see what your dentist sees when he looks in your mouth? Now you can! We are pleased to utilize intraoral cameras at our dental office to better evaluate your oral health and to help you better understand your smile. An intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped tool that easily fits in your mouth. Our dentist can then use the intraoral camera to capture high-quality digital images of your teeth, gums, and the rest of your smile. The intraoral camera in Laurinburg, North Carolina, is especially useful for taking images of angles and areas of your smile that are difficult to view with the unassisted eye. We can then display these images on a monitor that is right in the treatment room, allowing you, our dentist, and our team easy viewing. Dr. Wendy Britt then uses these live, color images to evaluate your oral health and assess dental damage, tooth decay, cracks or chips in the teeth, periodontal (gum) disease, and more. These images also help you better understand your dental health and the need for the treatments we recommend. In addition, we can send the images provided by the intraoral camera to specialists, other healthcare providers, and insurance companies as needed.
We welcome you to contact our dental office today for more information about intraoral cameras and their uses. We look forward to seeing you at our office soon!
