Our dentist may use an intraoral camera during your care at Elite Dental Care, depending on what specific treatment you receive. This allows Dr. Brien Polk to observe the parts of your teeth that are not visible to the naked eye, allowing for him to make more accurate diagnoses.
An intraoral camera is a small, wand-like instrument with a camera on the end that our dentist will move around your mouth. It is small enough to still be comfortable for the patient and is maneuverable to allow Dr. Polk to focus in on certain parts of your teeth and gums. The camera on the end sends high-quality colored images to a monitor so that you can see what Dr. Polk sees and be more involved in the planning of your dental care.
Intraoral cameras are used to detect things like the progression of dental decay and damage, cracked teeth and periodontal disease. Once any issues are detected, our dentist will be able to determine the best treatment for your specific case and get you back on track toward your healthiest smile. We invite you to call 731-635-5000 to schedule your consultation, during which Dr. Polk may use an intraoral camera in Ripley, Tennessee. We look forward to helping you improve your oral health.
