Patient education is something we take very seriously here at Surprise Oral & Implant Surgery. At Surprise Oral & Implant Surgery, we have specialists in all the dentistry fields, and we’re using the latest dentistry equipment to ensure 100% customer satisfaction and give you the bright smile you always wanted.
One of the devices used in our clinic is called an intraoral camera and is used to provide a better view in the mouth of the patient. Using intraoral cameras has become increasingly popular because it provides a clearer image than the old-fashioned way with mirrors, and because it can also allow the patient to see where the problems are and the final results.
As dental technology advances rapidly, there are more products that can suit any patient’s needs. To receive good treatment, our clinic is making sure always to have the latest models of intraoral cameras. The tiny digital cameras that our clinic has can easily capture digital images even in the most difficult to reach areas of the mouth. The process is painless and takes a few seconds. Back in the days of the mirror, the dentist had to push the gums away and ask the patient to open the mouth in the most uncomfortable position, but thanks to rapid technology advancement, those days are over.
About Intraoral Cameras and Their Benefits
These amazing devices have been around for a long time, but due to rapid technological advancement, they have become increasingly popular in the past few years. The best part about using a camera instead of a mirror is that the patient can see exactly what’s wrong and take part of the diagnosis. Our specialists will show the patient a clear picture of the mouth and will discuss treatment options openly.
Another benefit is that with intraoral cameras, oral problems can be detected early. The camera captures pictures of small cavities or dental problems that could easily be missed in the past when using the mirror. This way, most of the problems are fixed before they become serious. An early detected issue can be solved painlessly and quicker than if the problem had a chance to develop.
Because the patient is involved in the diagnostics, the trust between our specialists and our patients improves. They can openly discuss the treatment options and plans while the professional is educating the patient about the issue they are confronting. People have been afraid of going to the dentist in the past because visits were uncomfortable and painful, and the patient had no other option but to trust the doctor. Now, with the help of an intraoral camera, our specialists have a way to communicate with patients and explain exactly what is going on. Another benefit is that it allows us to keep a detailed dental file of the patient for further reference.
In our clinic, we keep detailed dental histories for all our patients so we can track the progress in their dental treatment. For more information about the intraoral camera and dentistry devices, call the experienced professionals here at Surprise Oral & Implant Surgery at (623) 263-5042 today!
