Advancements in technology have provided the industry with tools that help assist our staff in detecting problems at their earliest stages. Here at Glen Allen Dentistry we are proud to provide procedures involving IntraOral imaging. The IntraOral camera allows the possibility not only to detect even the smallest of details, but also helps to identify defects that can lead to problems later.
IntraOral cameras are small digital cameras; about the size of a pen, that have the capability to connect to a large screen to show real time images as a mouth is being examined. This device helps to educate our patients and provide them information that helps them easily understand the condition of their oral health. Attached to the IntraOral camera is a bright LED that helps to diagnose cavities, fractures, or other defects that would be hard to see with the naked eye.
- Immediate Results: with IntraOral imaging you can see exactly what the doctor sees while inspecting your teeth, it is also possible for the patient to see what the doctor does when working on your teeth.
- Precise: We have the ability to take high quality photos of the inside of your mouth for more detail. This also helps to identify any changes to your oral conditions over time.
- Easy referrals: If another opinion is needed from a specialist, the photos taken from your IntraOral exam can easily be emailed.
- Better Planning: With more detailed results it makes it easier to identify the best treatment plan for your exact dental needs.
