When your dentist and hygienist conduct an oral exam, there are many tools available to help create a clear picture of your dental health. However, it can be difficult to help patients understand problems they can’t see, and sometimes more detail is needed for an accurate assessment. That’s why Red Bank Smiles includes intra-oral photos among the other dental technology we employ to care for our patients. Learn more about these quick, easy photos and how they help Dr. Klayman and his team to provide the best care possible.
Intra-oral photos are taken inside your mouth using a small, specialized camera, giving your dentist and hygienist visual access to areas of the teeth and gums that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to investigate. The pictures are instant and easily understandable to both patients and dental care providers alike. This makes it easier for you to understand your full oral health situation, as well as any suggested treatments. Intra-oral photos can also track oral health progress, highlighting problem areas and clearly documenting changes.
