Digital pictures of your teeth are taken, which are then shown and discussed to you. A prognosis is then made, which means you can make treatment decisions with confidence, as it allows you to see on a monitor what we see during the examination. This allows us to point out areas of concern and explain in more detail exactly what needs to be done, such as restoring worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque build-up, cavities next to fillings and excessive tooth wear.
An intra-oral camera allows us to view a specific area of your tooth with magnification. This tool has become a valuable addition to our practice. Still images can be stored so that we can compare changes at each of your examinations; they can also be printed and emailed if necessary.
