Intraoral cameras can go a long way towards making the treatment process much clearer and more transparent for our patients. We’ll start by navigating a camera-tipped wand around the mouth, capturing dozens of images of the teeth, gums, oral tissue, existing restorations, and more. Then, Dr. Patel can share these images with you straight from the treatment chair during your discussion about possible care recommendations, pointing out any clear signs of damage and thoroughly explaining the positive effects of certain services with the help of a visual aid.
Older patients may remember the days of having an X-ray captured on traditional film and then developed slowly in a darkroom. Thankfully, digital radiography has transformed this essential diagnostic process for the better! Now, high-resolution X-rays of the oral structures can be viewed in mere seconds; our team can even magnify and color-code them to help each patient better understand what they’re seeing on the screen. They also emit much lower doses of radiation, which makes them safer for you and your family.
When planning advanced procedures like root canal therapy and surgical dental implant placement, Dr. Patel wants to ensure that his proposed plan of action is thoroughly precise and accurate. That’s where our revolutionary CT/Cone Beam comes in! This technology goes a big step further than traditional X-rays, creating three-dimensional digital models of the patient’s oral structures and mapping out even the smallest details like facial nerves with excellent clarity. This information allows us to maximize projected success for even the most extensive treatment plans.
