See What We See with Intraoral Cameras
Even with lights and mirrors, a patient can’t see what their dentist can – that is, until now. To help people have a clear idea of the actual status of their dental health, we use intraoral cameras.
Dr. Oyler or one of our hygienists can insert a pen-sized, camera-tipped wand into your mouth. Covered with a disposable plastic sheath to prevent contamination, the wand takes a video of the inside of your mouth and transmits the images via cable to a computing unit. The computing unit enlarges the full-color images and sends them to a TV screen right next to the dental chair. Aha! There it is – your mouth on the screen. Dr. Oyler can show you the benefits of your oral hygiene, point out areas of concern, and explain his recommendations for treatment so you’ll become an informed partner in your dental care.

A Close-Up Look at Your Mouth
Seeing your dental problems may seem overwhelming at first, but consider the experience an initial step toward a healthier, fresher smile. The camera can reveal the early stages of potentially serious problems, allowing us the opportunity to prevent small problems before they escalate. This is especially helpful with gum disease and conditions that cause damage without creating pain. The camera's honest survey also shows how regular home hygiene routines pay off. Our hygienist or Dr. Oyler will recommend ways to improve your home care based on their findings.
