At Family Dental Choice, we are firm believers in the old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We continuously seek new techniques and technologies that will help us keep your mouth healthy and help you avoid painful and costly procedures. One technology that allows us to do that is our intraoral camera. While X-rays are useful, an intraoral camera provides us with a view of the most minute of problems: cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities that are masked by adjacent fillings, and excessive wear, just to name a few. The earlier we can detect these problems, the less invasive and expensive your treatments will be.
Our intraoral camera is no bigger than the size of the mirror we use when you visit for cleanings and exams. How will you know that we’re using it? An image of your mouth will be visible to both you and Dr. Hahn on a monitor. Not only does this help Dr. Hahn detect potential problems, it allows you to be aware of your dental health and make informed decisions about treatment options.
