Dental Intraoral Camera
Intraoral cameras are a great educational tool used to show patients what is going on in their mouths. With intraoral cameras, you can see cracks in your teeth, fillings that are breaking down, cavities. You can see tartar or calculus, gingivitis, and many other problems that are going on in your mouth. When you know what is going on, you can then make an informed decision about the best treatment for you.
Intraoral cameras are mainly just video cameras that take still pictures. The one we use is a small cylindrical camera with a light on the end. There are many brands and types of intraoral cameras, but they all work basically the same. When you use one you can zoom in on the tooth, or show an anterior arch, a full dental arch, or take a snapshot.
Sometimes people are suspicious of what the dentist tells them, especially if they are not in any pain and don’t believe that they have a problem, such as if they just come in for a check-up and discover they need lots of dental work done on their teeth which they had not planned on having done. With an intraoral camera, patients have the option of seeing what the dentist is seeing, so they understand why they need the work carried out.
Intraoral cameras are painless and require no radiation at all, so they can be used as many times as needed without any potentially harmful effects. They are also a valuable tool to allow the dentist to monitor your treatment and track your progress at subsequent visits.Back
The care I received was courteous and very professional. The dentist was extremely gentle. She replaced a filling which I had lost and all I can say is “It’s BEAUTIFUL!”. The experience was painless and actually pleasant. My concerns about dental amalgams and root canals were taken into consideration and I felt like I was genuinely listened to. I highly recommend this dental office!03/12/2016
Very positive experience. The reception was friendly and helpful. I am a little apprehensive, as are most I think when visiting the dentist, but this team was kind, gentle, but also very informative. Dr. Aujla has a very peaceful demeanour, I would definitely recommend this team for a stress free dental experience.18/11/2016
The lovely woman who did my cleaning was warm and welcoming, and I felt so at ease with her that it was almost as good as getting a massage! It was the most relaxed I’ve ever been at the dentist. Also, I loved how she was caring and didn’t make fake “small talk” with me. A total delight! The dentist was also warm, gentle, sweet, and she seemed so relaxed. It was kind of like being in the hands of angels. Not exaggerating! Thank you, Lara24/09/2016
Thank you for the great first impression! As someone who has worked in the service industry for more than 30 years I can tell you are doing a great job! I was greeted by 2 lovely assistants at the front desk one of which actually remembered my email address when I mentioned who I was – that’s a clear sign of paying attention to details and connecting to the clients who are coming in. The rest of my visit was as welcoming and also incredibly informative. I learned more about my teeth and loved the digital imaging that really showed me what Dr. Ruby was explaining. I’ve already recommended the office to my 2 daughters and their families and I will continue to spread the word. Thank you again for the great experience I look forward to my next visit!22/09/2016
