Why Digital Intra-Oral Photography is so Important

Only digital intra-oral photography can provide the most accurate view of your teeth and gums required to instantly detect a number of oral health issues, such as gum disease, enamel cracks, abnormalities, oral cancer, and cavities. To show you why we believe digital intra-oral photography is so essential in achieving optimal oral care, read on.  

Captures Hard-to-See Angles

There are angles inside your mouth that are often difficult to see with the naked eye. That’s why digital intra-oral photography is so beneficial. These tiny cameras allow us to capture all the tricky areas so that we can get an in-depth look of your mouth.

Provides Instant Results

Unlike X-rays, we can see the images immediately on the screen in your treatment room. This makes it easier for our dental team to review your oral condition and to compare the findings with your other records.  

Helps Us Track Your Progress

We can also use digital intra-oral photography to track your overall progress or decline. By taking before and after shots, we can compare these to get a better picture of your dental health over time.

Improves Communication

Being able to present detailed pictures to our clients allows us to explain a diagnosis better and propose a treatment plan. This helps to improve our overall communication with our clients and their overall understanding.

Aids in Lab Preparation

Pictures can also help laboratories with accurate information on tooth position, shape, and colour. This is much more accurate than other models and helps to ensure that you get the most optimal esthetics.

State-of-the-art equipment like digital intra-oral photography allows our team at The Teal Umbrella to detect a number of oral health issues and share these quickly with other dentists, surgeons, and health professionals when needed. They ensure you get the most efficient and optimal dental care possible as we can get a closer look at your oral health that we can’t see with the naked eye. We don’t always need to take pictures, but when we do, you’ll now understand why we use digital intra-oral photography alongside x-rays.
