How an intraoral camera improves your patient experience

At Dugan Family Dentistry of Wichita, Kansas, Dr. Steve Dugan and his team provide patients with the latest solutions and devices for diagnosing and treating specific dental issues. One of the technologies used in the office is intraoral cameras, which can dramatically improve the way dental diagnosis is performed. Let’s learn more about intraoral cameras and their benefits.

What are intraoral cameras?

Intraoral cameras are small, handheld cameras that Dr. Dugan uses to get a close-up view of his patient’s teeth and gums. These images can be displayed on a computer monitor immediately to help patients visualize the issues at hand and discuss treatment options with their dental team.

What are the advantages of intraoral cameras at Dugan Family Dentistry?

  • Accuracy. The intraoral camera takes images of the patient’s smile, allowing them to see what the dentist sees. This allows our team to detect problems early and provide more accurate diagnoses and treatment plans while ensuring patients understand the issues at hand and have a role in their treatment progress.
  • Improved trust. Intraoral cameras also improve the dentist-patient relationship because they allow patients to see what the dentist sees. This can put patients at ease and build trust between them and their dental care provider.
  • Education. In addition, intraoral cameras are used to educate patients about their oral health. By showing patients real-time images of their teeth and gums, dentists can help them understand the importance of good oral hygiene habits.
  • Storage. Intraoral camera images are saved on the computer for easy access anytime you need them. This allows the dental team and patient to monitor the progress of specific smile concerns and take action as soon as it is required to maintain oral health and wellness.
