Intraoral Cameras Turn Patients into Partners
Did you know what the inside of your mouth looks like? Or better yet, do you know what a healthy mouth is supposed to look like? If your answer to either of those questions is no, you are similar to most people who are asked the same questions!
how it works
At the office of Dr. Priti Naik, we use an intraoral camera upon every visit to get the ultimate picture of every patient’s dental health. An intraoral camera is mounted on the tip of a pen-like wand and wrapped in a disposable plastic cover (for contamination purposes). Dr. Naik places the intraoral camera in the patient’s mouth to take a quick video. It works by transmitting images it takes in a patient’s mouth through a cable to a computing unit. The computing unit then analyzes, enlarges, and colorizes the images to full-size where they are displayed on an examination room monitor.
You can easily see the entire, surprisingly detailed, inside of your mouth, including your teeth, gums, and tongue all while comfortably sitting in your dental chair! The intraoral camera allows Dr. Naik to identify your dental problems, explain their recommendations for treatment, so each patient can become and informed partner their own dental care, instead of just and ordinary patient. After all it is your health we’re talking about!
