Our office uses an intraoral camera in Chicago, Illinois, to view high-resolution images of the inside of your mouth. This unobtrusive device allows Dr. Rojas to more accurately diagnose and treat dental problems. Call Shoreline Dental Chicago today at (312) 266-9487 to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our great team.
An intraoral camera can help us get a closer look at your mouth from many different angles. Due to its small size and shape that resembles a pen, we can easily move the camera in your mouth and capture high-quality photos of your teeth, gums and other supporting structures. With the intraoral camera, we can see parts of your mouth that we could not see with eyes alone, which allows us to better evaluate your oral health and diagnose conditions such as tooth decay or periodontal disease as well as seeing tooth damage, such as cracking or chipping. We can also use the camera to check on the progress of any treatments you are undergoing.
The images are very useful for our team and Dr. Rojas, but you as our patient can also see them and get an idea of your oral health! We can also send the images to other dentists or specialists or even insurance companies to help you get the care you need. To learn more about how we use the intraoral camera in our office and dental treatments, we welcome you to give us a call and ask to schedule with our dentist.
