X-rays are an excellent way to diagnose oral health issues; however, with the intraoral camera available at Crystal Lake Dental Associates, we can assess your dental needs to an even greater extent. Using the intraoral camera, we can examine areas of your mouth that x-rays cannot show.
What is an Intraoral Camera?
The intraoral camera is small, roughly the size of a standard dental mirror, and features a built-in light source. With this small camera, we can easily identify problems such as tooth decay, cracked or broken fillings, cracked teeth and signs of gum disease among others to help us create an effective treatment plan.
Take a Tour of Your Mouth
Crystal Lake Dental Associates also uses the intraoral camera in conjunction with a computer monitor, allowing you to view what’s going on inside your mouth as we examine.
By directly observing the examination, you can now be an active partner in your treatment. Clearly seeing your oral condition will help you make confident treatment decisions.
