Why Every Dentist Needs an Intraoral Camera
With modern dentistry on the rise, quality dental equipment is an absolute must. Intraoral cameras and handheld dental x-ray machines are one of the most important tools a dental office can invest in. This article discusses some of the reasons why every dentist needs an intraoral camera.
Early Detection of Oral Health Problems
Many patients fear the dentist and would do just about anything to avoid an invasive and costly dental procedure. Luckily, Digital Doc offers a wide range of intraoral cameras that are perfect for detecting oral health problems in the beginning stages. Treatment is often less painful, expensive and time-consuming when the problem is caught sooner than later. If you have intraoral cameras in your office, you will put your patients and your patients will be more at ease.
Improving Communication Improves Case Acceptance
When a dental problem is not visible to the naked eye, it can be hard to convince patients the extent or seriousness of the issue. Intraoral cameras decrease communication barriers between the patient and the doctor, giving the patient a better understanding of what’s at stake. Furthermore, it’s much easier for the patient to comply with treatment once you’ve given them the visual data to back it up. Investing in intraoral cameras in your office will allow you to communicate effectively with your patients and improve your overall case acceptance.
Improving Patient Rapport
Intraoral cameras allow dentists to show and explain dental problems to patients in real-time. Digital Doc’s intraoral cameras help locate hard-to-find problems such as tooth fractures, pulp exposures, and caries. The LUM enhances detection capabilities with sub-enamel illumination diagnostic methods. LUM applies high-intensity light source to the tooth, which allows professionals to accurately assess and advise treatment. Also, including patients in the diagnosis and treatment process allows you to establish a trustworthy relationship with the patient and reduce their anxiety. Overall, using intraoral cameras to diagnose and treat patients can help you build patient rapport.
