Experience Next-Level Dental Diagnostics with Intraoral Cameras at Portal Dental Pasadena
If you’ve ever wondered what your dentist sees during an oral examination, you’re not alone. At Portal Dental Pasadena, located at 3409 Spencer Hwy Suite 100, Pasadena, Texas 77504, we are proud to utilize intraoral cameras for enhanced diagnostics and patient education.
What Are Intraoral Cameras?
Intraoral cameras are pen-sized devices with a high-resolution camera at the tip, allowing us to capture detailed images of hard-to-reach areas in your mouth. Displayed in real-time on a monitor, these images help both our dental team and our patients understand what’s going on inside the oral cavity.
Why Intraoral Cameras Are Important
The camera provides a unique advantage—enabling us to view your entire mouth on a screen. This closer look can be crucial in identifying potential dental issues before they become bigger problems.
- Enhanced Visualization: The high-quality images make it easier to detect early signs of issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and plaque buildup.
- Patient Engagement: You get to see the same images we see, fostering a more open dialogue about your treatment options.
- Documentation: These digital images can be stored for future reference, helping us track your oral health over time.
- Insurance Approval: The captured images are highly detailed, often making it easier to secure procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
Are There Any Limitations?
While intraoral cameras offer superior surface-level imaging, they are not a replacement for traditional X-rays for assessing bone structure or detecting issues between teeth.
