Intraoral Camera Overview
Intraoral cameras provide a more thorough and detailed dental examination. By using one of these small pen-like devices, experienced dentist Dr. Despina Markogiannakis can have a better, high-resolution view of your teeth and gums. An intraoral camera is able to capture different angles of your teeth and gums and takes a live video that can be displayed on an attached monitor. It can also provide a more accurate diagnosis and help you to fully understand your condition. The intraoral camera system can also be used during treatment to give Dr. Markogiannakis a better visual. During your consultation at Smiles of Chevy Chase, Dr. Marko can demonstrate the benefits of intraoral cameras to attain a more accurate dental examination and treatments. Contact our dental office in Chevy Chase, MD if you have any questions about our innovative dental technology.
Best Candidates for Intraoral Camera
Using an intraoral camera to examine the teeth and gums can be beneficial for any dental patient. It can help you gain a better understanding of your dental conditions by showing you a clear image of the problems. A useful tool for both you and Dr. Marko, intraoral cameras provide accurate and effective diagnoses, as well as make it easier for you to understand your treatment.
What To Expect with Intraoral Camera
With a shape and size similar to a pen, an intraoral camera is a flexible instrument that will transmit live video from your mouth to a digital monitor. Dr. Markogiannakis will glide the camera over your teeth and gums while viewing the images on the screen. She will also be able to capture images that can be used in a more intensive analysis. By allowing you and Dr. Marko to view the images on a monitor, a more informed decision and treatment plan can be created. This will ultimately help you have a better understanding of your dental health.
Intraoral Camera Follow-Up
If a problem is detected with the intraoral camera, Dr. Marko will discuss with you the appropriate treatment options available to take care of it. Once a treatment plan has been crafted and decided on, you should schedule a follow-up appointment(s) at Smiles of Chevy Chase to begin your treatment. Typically, intraoral cameras can be beneficial in catching a dental problem early on, which means your treatment may be less invasive and less time-consuming. The camera can also be used during your treatment to make it more successful.
