At Avason Family Dentistry, we base our feelings on trust and strive to be transparent with our patients, and with these cameras, we are able to achieve this goal.
Denver, NC (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Dr. Frank Avason, cosmetic dentist in Denver, NC now offers intraoral camera technology to assist patients in improving oral hygiene. This technology allows his patients to be more involved in the process of achieving personal oral health by seeing, evaluating and communicating with Dr. Avason exactly what is occurring in the patient’s mouth. Intraoral cameras assist in preventing invasive and expensive procedures because the cameras detect maladies at earlier stages.
X-ray images are most commonly used in dentistry; however, these images reveal areas significantly in need of treatment and are not always clear to patients. Intraoral cameras produce clear images that are easier for the patient to decipher. With this new technology, Dr. Avason feels confident in being able to diagnose necessary treatments, even at earlier stages, which prevents more invasive dental treatments, like crowns or root canals.
“With the use of intraoral cameras, we show our patients specific and detailed circumstances within their mouths,” said Dr. Avason, sedation dentist in Denver, NC. “At Avason Family Dentistry, we base our feelings on trust and strive to be transparent with our patients, and with these cameras, we are able to achieve this goal.”
The intraoral camera uses innovative technology to take pictures of teeth. Placed at the end of a wand-like device, the camera easily reaches all areas of the mouth for maximum imaging. Dr. Avason uses the detailed images to show each patient the condition of each tooth. The patent is able to see healthy teeth from areas of the teeth that have cause for concern. With this information, Dr. Avason and his patient, together, can make decisions regarding any particular dental procedures that are needed. Patients will also gain validation of practicing correct dental hygiene they can clearly see the conditions of their own teeth.
