We feel it’s important to make sure you understand your current oral health condition, in order to help you make the best decision for your oral and overall health. In order to help you see what Dr. Joseph Serra sees, we offer digital imaging with an intra-oral camera.
The intra oral camera is a small digital camera that looks like a pen. It can connect to our computer and a monitor for you to view. The camera contains a bright LED light which helps us see cavities or fractures that might be difficult to see with the naked eye. The intra oral camera can increase accuracy by allowing a clear, large view of decay and infection. By taking intra oral photos during your exams, we can also note changes in the appearance of your teeth and gums over time.
The intra oral camera can lead to better planning. We can discuss any oral health concerns together and collaboratively come up with a plan that is best for you.
Many patients report loving our intra oral camera and the ability to see problem areas first hand, including: cracked teeth, decay, worn-out or defective fillings, bleeding gums, plaque and more.
Intra oral cameras are an effective communication and educational tool, which will provide you the freedom to see a clear photo of the condition of your oral health.
We look forward to seeing you soon and hope you’ve found this newsletter both interesting and informative.
