Dr. Duke Kim utilizes intraoral camera technology to help enhance your understanding of your dental condition. Many patients struggle to understand why they need complicated dental procedures when they are not experiencing any pain. Sometimes, there is no obvious visual evidence proving that the procedure is needed. To help shed some more light on your oral health and treatment recommendations, our dentists uses an intraoral camera.
What is an Intraoral Camera?
An intraoral camera is approximately the size of a magic marker that houses a tiny camera just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows Dr. Duke Kim to capture and view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Why Use an Intraoral Camera?
Dr. Duke Kim wants our patients to be as informed as possible as to any problems they might have, anything they can do to combat them and any procedures we feel will improve a patient’s oral health. With an intraoral camera, patients can easily see their mouths in real-time, meaning they do not have to try and understand what is being seen on an X-ray.
