We’ve found that sometimes it’s difficult for our patients to understand the condition of their teeth the way that Dr. Rafo does. One way that we improve our patients’ dental experience is through the use of an intraoral camera in our diagnosis.
What Is an Intraoral Camera?
An intraoral camera is a small, pen-like device with a camera on the end. The camera contains a bright LED which helps us diagnose cavities or fractures that are difficult to see with the naked eye. The camera is connected to a monitor which allows you to see up close what Dr. Rafo is seeing. This dramatically improves your dental experience by helping you understand why Dr. Rafo would recommend a certain treatment.
Why We Use an Intraoral Camera
Our goal here at Saint Orthodontics is to make your experience as easy and effective as possible, which is why we use an intraoral camera in our diagnostic process. Patients have routinely expressed their appreciation of our intraoral camera. They get to see up close the state of their teeth, including problems such as cracked teeth, decay, worn-out or defective fillings, bleeding gums, and tartar.
Here at Saint Orthodontics, we serve patients throughout El Cajon, CA and invite you to give a call to one of our friendly staff members. Our main phone number is (619) 464-1771. You can also shoot us a quick email with any questions that you may have.
We look forward to serving you!
