At River Valley Dental, we pride ourselves on using the most technologically-advanced dentistry techniques and treatments available today.
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool used for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to see as recently as just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a computer monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential oral issues. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first-hand the same intraoral images that their dentist and/or hygienist is seeing. We have found that these intraoral digital images are also an excellent tool for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
Intraoral cameras take photographs of the tooth and surrounding areas, but x-rays are still the preferred method for dental providers to view the inner structure of the tooth, root, and bone. X-rays and intraoral cameras, when used in conjunction with one another, can provide a very detailed and accurate view of a patient’s dental situation.
