When you have a dental exam, do you ever wish you could see what your dentist sees to understand your oral health condition? We think it’s crucial for our patients to be involved and informed about their oral health, and state-of-the-art intraoral cameras simplify the process.
During your six-month checkup, Dr. Gaona uses an intraoral camera so you can see what he sees. With incredible features like LED lighting, a rotating head, and powerful magnifying capabilities, he can examine your mouth, teeth, and gums in extreme detail. Because Dr. Gaona shares the images with you, you can easily see problems like cavities, broken teeth, or broken fillings.
Being informed and understanding your oral health needs helps you make confident, educated decisions about your dental treatment. We can also save the images to your patient record, so they are instantly available for reference or to share with specialists or insurance providers.
Dental x-rays are essential because they let our dentist look inside your teeth to detect problems that aren’t visible during a routine examination. We use digital x-rays at Cambridge Dental because they provide highly detailed images and, more importantly, protect you by emitting about 80 percent less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Using digital x-rays, also referred to as radiographs, Dr. Gaona quickly and accurately diagnoses cavities, gum disease, and bone loss. Digital x-rays show hidden dental structures like wisdom teeth and the inside of your tooth called the pulp chamber where dental abscesses and root canal infections form.
We also use your digital x-rays as an educational tool to help keep you informed about your oral health needs. When Dr. displays your x-ray images on your chairside monitor, he can point out the problem area and explain how it’s affecting your oral health and why he recommends treatment.
Digital x-rays are always available at the click of a button, and we can easily share them with specialists and insurance providers as needed.
