Your mouth is a very small space with many different pockets and areas. Those areas are hard to see sometimes, even for a trained professional such as a hygienist. Introduce the intraoral camera. This camera specializes in photographing very small spaces and objects, including your teeth and the gum tissue around your teeth. It looks like a dental instrument that the hygienist easily operates with her hand, going in and around all the spaces of your teeth and mouth.
During your hygiene appointments, this technologically advanced camera will be used to help you see your dental condition as a way of including you in making a customized plan for your dental health. We will take photos of any areas of interest, display them on our computer screen, and can even print the photos for you to take home. These photos are also used in diagnosing any potential oral health concerns, and Dr. Paul will use them when creating a customized treatment and preventive plan for you.
