It’s hard to understate the importance of imaging in dentistry. The more a dentist can see, the easier it becomes to make an accurate diagnosis and provide an effective treatment. Back in the “old days,” a dentist’s best visual aid was the concave mirror – that small circular object with a metal handle you might’ve seen in the past. Today, advanced computer optics have made a more comfortable and efficient solution. Lifeway Dental is proud to use intraoral cameras in Boca Raton for our patients.
Intraoral cameras are small digital cameras that are adjusted onto or surrounded by a flexible plastic component that resembles a wand or pen. These cameras capture clear video images of hard-to-reach parts of the mouth in real-time.
The two biggest reasons intraoral cameras are such an effective tool for dentists are their comfort and clarity. Getting to the tighter areas of the mouth used to cause discomfort to patients, but these cameras are small, nimble, and easy to operate without irritating any part of the mouth. Furthermore, these devices capture high-resolution images that are easy for the dentist to study. This is especially useful when looking for cavities, tarnished fillings, small fractures, or other details that might not be easily seen using a mirror.
Lifeway Dental is excited to give our patients something that few are used to – high-quality dental care that is also comfortable. Get in touch with us today to learn more!
