Clarity Matters To Your Patients
How Intraoral Cameras Can Improve the Care Your Patients Receive
Modern dentistry has come a long way. Patients now expect the highest standard of care without undue inconveniences. One of the diagnostic tools that can help your dental practice to meet those high patient expectations effortlessly is the X90 HD intraoral camera. This article discusses some of the ways dental intraoral cameras can increase the level of patient care and communication in your dental practice.
High-Tech Dental Imaging
Providing a high standard of care to your patients starts with making the right diagnosis each time you examine or assess a dental patient is the standard today. Dental technology has come so far, yet some Dentists are spending what it would cost to upgrade their equipment on a couple of months worth of Google Adwords. Which is where we pose the question, What has a better long-term return from your practice? Increasing new patient numbers is great but do we sometimes overlook the value of using technology to help us create long-term and short-term treatment plans. Many of the diagnostic tools available in the past were unable to give clear images upon which a definitive diagnosis could be made. Today we are in a vastly different space.
X90 intraoral cameras have changed all that. They enable you as a dentist to get ultra-clear images of the structures inside a patient’s mouth. Consequently, you will be able to make a diagnosis faster and more accurately. Our liquid lens technology is unlike any other intraoral camera on the market today. Any oral health treatment plan will deliver your patient with a sense of trust and comfort moving forward. Your patients will grow to value the services you offer, and your bottom line will improve due to the high patient retention rates.
Less Invasive Dental Procedures
Not many patients look forward to a dental visit. Part of that reluctance has to do with the way the dentist used to practice dentistry. The visual is that getting poked with different dental tools is just the start of an uncomfortable experience. Your patients today should be excited about the 4k quality images you can share with them. Despite our collective efforts to change the perception, dental visits are still perceived to be uncomfortable enough that patients put off visits until they become unavoidable.
With X90 dental cameras, the patient experience is turned around since the camera can quickly capture detailed images of all the oral structures. Your team can analyze those images in order to properly diagnose the patient collaboratively and transparently. Consequently, the time that a patient spends in the dental chair can be reduced significantly. This time-saving diagnostic procedure ultimately makes patients less apprehensive about keeping their dentist appointments.
Cooperative Diagnosis & Case Acceptance
Another key way intraoral cameras can improve the patient’s experience and the quality of care provided is through the cooperative diagnosis that can be done. You can use a computer screen to show the patient the images that are being taken by the IRIS intraoral camera in real time. Alternatively, you can take all the needed images and review them with your patient once he or she is out of the dental chair.
This interactive process will enable you to show the patient any issues discovered during the assessment. You can then go on to explain the options available for treating the condition discovered.
The patient will be in a better position to make an informed decision about the different treatment options you suggest. Consequently, that patient will be more likely to adhere to any instructions that you give when treating him or her.
The net result is that the treatment will succeed since all parties will be working together to attain mutually-beneficial goals.
As you can see, you can use your newly acquired IRIS intraoral camera as a way to alleviate any fears that your patients may have. Use the intraoral camera as frequently as possible so that your dental practice can increase the effectiveness of patient assessment and treatment.
