As technology has advanced over the years, the dental field has advanced
with it. With the rise in advanced equipment, dentists have been able
to provide digital x-rays, perform oral cancer screenings, and offer ultrasonic
At Austell Dental Associates, our skilled Austell dentists provide all
of these services and more. We pride ourselves on using
state-of-the-art technology to stay ahead in the dental field and offer the best possible care to
our patients. One of the ways we do this is through intraoral dental cameras,
an exciting innovation sweeping oral hygiene practices across the country.
What Are Dental Intraoral Cameras?
Dental intraoral cameras are hand-held recording devices, roughly the size
of a toothbrush, that scan patients’ mouths for potential issues.
These cameras transfer high-resolution 3D images, which dentists can analyze
on monitors and save in patients’ files. Although this technology
has existed for a few years, it has now started to take a hold in dental
practices across the country, largely being recognized as more accurate
than classic dental mirrors. In fact,
the market for intraoral cameras is expected to explode in the next decade, making them the norm by 2025.
At Austell Dental Associates, we are proud to offer intraoral camera services
to all of our patients. Come in for an intraoral examination today and
see for yourself how we can enhance images of your teeth up to 40 times
larger than ever before.
What Intraoral Cameras Can Do for You
Intraoral cameras benefit dental patients in a number of ways, including:
Quicker Diagnoses: With intraoral cameras, dentists can analyze footage in real-time, keeping
you up to date on any decay and other problems as they are found.
Faster Treatments: With the speed of examination intraoral cameras allows for, dentists can
start treating issues sooner, thereby improving the chances for success.
More Comprehensive Records: In recording patients’ teeth more accurately, intraoral cameras help
dentists construct a comprehensive picture of a person’s oral health
overtime. While it wasn’t that long ago that dentists had to analyze
a patient’s dental health by comparing notes, now they have visual
aids that can be complied and examined over multiple years.
Better Insurance Claims: Many insurance companies still require a considerable amount of documentation
before approving procedures. With intraoral cameras, dentists can use
the high-resolution images they’ve taken to better support claims,
offering tangible proof to insurance providers so they act in support
of the policyholder.
Less Money Overtime: By identifying problems before they get out of hand, a good dentist will
be able to save you thousands of dollars on dental work in the future.
And remember, tooth decay and gum disease don’t just affect your
mouth. They also contribute to stroke, diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory
infections, meaning the use of intraoral cameras could potentially save
you money on a litany of medical costs (not to mention saving you from
several deadly conditions).
