what is intra-oral tv?

The skilled dentists at Washington Center for Dentistry use the highly effective Intra-Oral TV. This advanced technology takes a tiny, pen-sized camera and puts it right inside of a patient’s mouth, shedding light on damaged fillings and crowns, gum disease and any budding problems that may cause future issues. The video image fills a full-color screen so both the dentist and the patient can see what’s happening in real-time. From there, the dentist can effectively customize an appropriate treatment plan to treat current issues and prevent future ones from arising.

What are the Benefits of intra-oral tv?

  • The patient is more involved in his or her health. Since you are able to see the images along with your dentist, you actually know your condition in real-time. As you sit comfortably in the dental chair, you can speak with your doctor to discuss your treatment options based off what both of you are seeing. You are able to make better, more informed decisions.
  • Problems can be detected sooner before they turn into more painful, extensive issues. The intra-oral camera is great at detecting cavities and gum disease.
  • Since the images can be magnified and are so detailed, the dentist can catch things he might have otherwise missed, causing a more thorough exam, which culminates in better results.
