While our digital x-rays provide us with valuable information, they cannot show YOU everything that we would like for you to understand about your mouth. That is why we at Westhill Dental have invested in an intraoral camera. We want you to be an informed partner in your dental care.
The intraoral camera handpiece is similar in size to a dental mirror. It has a built-in light source and serves as a small video camera so we can give you a tour of your mouth and show you areas of concern, including plaque, cavities, excessive wear, broken fillings, and cracked teeth. The zoom magnifies the picture 25 times and displays the image on a screen right at your dental chair.
