Dental technology has come a long way. With the intraoral camera, Dr. Labbe, Dr. Staat, and associates can see inside a patient’s mouth, assisting them with treatment. Planet Dental uses this high-tech equipment to make our patients’ experience with our dentists more enjoyable. We welcome you to contact our office to learn more about our intraoral camera in Laredo, Texas. Call us at 956-242-4245.
An intraoral camera is a high-tech tool we use to get an up-close look at various parts of your smile. It is a small, pen-shaped tool that can capture high-quality, color photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other features in your mouth as needed. Thanks to its small size and easy maneuverability, we can use the intraoral camera to see angles in your mouth that we cannot be easily assessed by the unaided eye. We may employ the intraoral camera to better examine your oral health and to diagnose dental issues like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth. The intraoral camera is also useful in following up after a treatment has been completed.
In addition to helping our dentist and team get a better view of your smile, the images captured with the intraoral camera are also helpful for helping you, our patient, to gain a better understanding of your oral health and dental treatments. Additionally, we can send these images to other dentists and specialists and submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we welcome you to call or visit our dentist and dental team. Please call us at 956-242-4245 today!
