Patients benefit from a digital photographic examination because they’ll see their teeth like they have never seen them before. When performing restorative dentistry, there is no better way to communicate to the laboratory the desired results than with digital photography.
An intraoral camera is a highly advanced innovation in dentistry that allows dentists to get a close-up view inside a patient’s mouth. The images are displayed on a television or computer monitor, so patients are able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings, gum disease, or excessive wear. After Dr. Van Pelt has treated the dental condition, the intraoral camera will show the new result.
