While x-rays provide valuable information that we can’t get from any other source, they can’t show you everything that’s going on in your mouth. That’s why we have invested in an intra oral camera, a highly advanced piece of diagnostic equipment that allows us to see inside your mouth.
The Intra oral camera hand piece has a built-in light source, and serves as a tiny video camera that allows us to zoom in on one tooth with 25 times magnification, or give you a video tour of your entire mouth. The images are displayed on a television or computer monitor, so you will be able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings and excessive wear. We can also print an image for you to take home with you.
The intra oral camera lets you see what we see
The intra oral camera allows you to be an active partner in your dental treatment by enabling you to see what is inside your mouth. With a clear understanding of your dental condition, you will be able to make treatment decisions with confidence. Various conditions that you may be unaware of, can be photographed and projected onto a viewing screen making it easier for you to see what we see.
Identifying and treating minor concerns before they become major concerns is an important part of our preventive philosophy at Smile Town Dental Group in Grimsby. This conserves your tooth structure, saves you time and money and enhances your long-term dental health.
