Intraoral Photography in Our Manhattan Dental Office
Intraoral photography is not a luxury many Manhattan dental practices have at their disposal, but our Midtown Manhattan dentist’s office is equipped with this technology. This advanced dental technology allows the dentist to explain to patients on a clearer level what is going on in their mouths. These small intraoral cameras are wand-like, and go into the mouth to take close-up photos of patients’ teeth. This allows the dentist to see more than he can see with his own eye.
This dental technology also benefits the patient. Intraoral photography allows the photos taken by these tiny cameras to be displayed so that the dentist can co-diagnose with his patients. In this way, patients get the chance to learn and understand why they are getting certain treatments or why they are given certain options when it comes to their teeth.
With intraoral photography, the dentist can see decay, cracks, and fillings that are breaking down. This technology helps the dentist catch these issues while they are minuscule and easier to repair.
