27 Nov Intraoral Cameras – Why does the dentist want to take pictures of my teeth?
All of our operatories have a special camera, that looks like a wand, designed to take pictures of the inside of the mouth. We may request to take pictures for the following reasons:
– Broken or cracked fillings or teeth
– A suspicious lesion that Dr. Johnson would like to monitor or refer to a specialist
– Before and after pictures of dental treatment
The cameras are a great tool for us to show patients what we see. The photos are saved in patient charts so we can reference them later and there is no additional charge for the photos!
