Intraoral cameras are small, pen-sized instruments that take digital images of your teeth. These digital images can help our dentist, Dr. Scott Steedman, and his dental team discover different angles and perspectives of your teeth and mouth. We can share these digital images with you so that you can see what’s going on with your mouth and what we see when we treat your smile. The images from the intraoral camera can also help us explain to you:
- Why we recommend certain treatments
- Which areas of the mouth need extra attention
- How your daily flossing and brushing habits affect your oral health
These images can also help us discover:
- Healthy areas of the mouth
- Other abnormalities in the mouth
- Spots of gum disease/gingivitis
- Instances of tooth decay
These images can be shown on a computer monitor or television screen right in the treatment room so you can see your smile instantly. If necessary, these images can also be shared with other healthcare providers, dentists, dental specialists and insurance agencies.
Intraoral cameras are just one piece of technology we use to complete your dental experience. For more information on any of our dental technology in Lake Stevens, Washington, please call Smiles By Steedman at 425-334-4087 today!
