While X-rays allow for a deeper view of your teeth, an intraoral camera provides a more realistic image of what is happening on the surface. This tool may not be a part of your normal six-month checkup, but if anything seems suspicious the dentist can easily take a closer look. Early diagnosis is key to preventative care and well-executed interventions. By using an intraoral camera everything inside the mouth can be seen in more detail on an external monitor. Everything from plaque to small cavities and cracks can be enhanced to be sure your dentist knows exactly what is happening with your teeth. Maintaining a beautiful smile and healthy gums has never been easier.
