Do you ever feel like you just have to take your dentist’s word on recommended treatment? At Tree City Family Dental, we believe that YOU are the leading authority on your body and want to engage you and make decisions on treatment together. A picture is worth a thousand words, and by showing you actual photos of your mouth, you can better understand if a decision on treatment is needed. When you visit Dr. Connaughton and Dr. Bator, you can see these photos of your mouth because we use an intraoral camera in Boise, Idaho. We welcome you to contact us today to learn more!
An intraoral camera is a tool we use to get a closer look at different parts of your smile. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped device that we can use to take high-quality color photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other areas of your mouth as needed. Because the intraoral camera is so small and easily maneuverable, we can use it to see angles in your mouth that we cannot easily view with the unaided eye. We may utilize the intraoral camera to better evaluate your oral health and to diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth. The intraoral camera is also useful in following up after a treatment has been completed.
In addition to helping our team get a better view of your smile, the images taken with the intraoral camera allow you, our patient, to gain a better understanding of your oral health and dental treatments. We can also send these photos to other dentists and specialists and can submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we invite you to call or visit our dentist and team soon.
