Intra-Oral Camera in Oakville
While x-rays provide valuable information that we canít get from any other source, they canít show you everything thatís going on in your mouth. Thatís why we have invested in an intraoral camera Ė a highly advanced piece of diagnostic equipment that allows you to see what we see inside your mouth.
The Intraoral camera handpiece is approximately the size and shaper of a dental mirror. It has a built-in light source, and serves as a tiny video camera that allows us to zoom in on one tooth with 25 times magnification, or give you a video tour of your entire mouth. The images are displayed on a television or computer monitor, so youíll be able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings and excessive wear. We can also print an image for you to take home with you.
You can see what we see
The intraoral camera allows you to be an active partner in your dental treatment by enabling you to see what inside your mouth. With a clear understanding of your dental condition, youíll be able to make treatment decisions with confidence.
Various conditions that you may be unaware of, can be photographed and projected onto a viewing screen making it easier for you to see what we see.
Identifying and treating minor concerns before they become major concerns is an important part of our preventive philosophy at Trafalgar village Dental in Oakville. This conserves your tooth structure, saves you time and money and enhances your long term dental health.
