What are Intra-Oral Pictures?
EMA Dental understands patients want insight about their dental health issues. Nothing helps a patient understand their own dental condition better than being able to see it! That’s why we use a small, intra-oral camera to help our patients better understand their diagnosis. Even though the camera is only few millimeters long, it grants our dentists and hygienists a remarkably clear view of your mouth. The intra-oral camera has the ability to produce clear digital snapshots of teeth and surrounding oral anatomy and will ensure a more accurate diagnosis.
EMA Dental, an East Longmeadow and Northampton family dentistry and prosthodontic specialty practice, can show you the images instantly and share, as needed, with other dental specialists or your insurance company.
What are the advantages of using Intra-Oral pictures?
The advantages of intra-oral pictures with your examination are endless! You will see what the doctor sees but on a large screen and the doctor will point out the areas of concern and help you to understand your proposed treatment. The photos only take a few extra minutes and become part of your permanent dental record. Anyone who can open their mouth would be a good candidate for this procedure; it is absolutely painless and is an immeasurable diagnostic tool.
