Have you ever wondered what our dentist looks for and sees during your dental exam? At Exceptional Dentistry, Dr. James Powell wants you to be involved in your oral care. To do that, we use the SOPROLIFE intraoral camera in Palmdale, California. An intraoral camera allows our dentist to take a closer look at the inside of your mouth and locate decay before it has a chance to destroy the tooth surface. Plus, the images taken by the intraoral camera appear on a computer, so you can see exactly what our dentist sees! By learning more about what can harm your oral health and where to find the damage, you can better care for your teeth outside of our office. Contact us today at (661) 349-7725 to schedule your visit!
Intraoral cameras are small, pen-like tools that dentists can use to get a closer, more detailed look at the inside of your mouth. While most small dental tools are used to clear away damaged pieces of tooth and create a loud, uncomfortable sound, an intraoral camera is not a tool to fear. There is no pain, no discomfort, and no loud noises when using an intraoral camera. Our dentist will simply move the tip of the camera around the inside of your mouth, taking images that are projected onto a nearby computer screen.
There are many different types of intraoral cameras, and at Exceptional Dentistry, we are pleased to use the SOPROLIFE intraoral camera. This specific camera enables our dentist to locate, identify, and treat dental issues early on, ultimately helping you avoid severe dental damage and costly treatments. However, SOPROLIFE goes above and beyond just taking images of the inside of your mouth. In addition, SOPROLIFE provides the following features:
- Daylight mode that captures high-definition, magnified images of your mouth while emitting white LED light. This means that our dentist can capture accurate and detailed images under any light source.
- Diagnosis and Treatment modes that use two different types of fluorescent lights that illuminate each individual tooth. Healthy enamel and dentition bounce color back to our dentist, while caries and demineralized areas absorb the light and appear darker.
With three different modes available, the SOPROLIFE intraoral camera enables our dentist to clearly see the inside of your teeth and accurately locate and diagnose the early formations of caries. With early detection, we can target weaker areas of your teeth and provide necessary treatment to prevent cavities from even forming.
At our practice, we are committed to utilizing the latest dental technology that will provide our patients with a more comfortable, efficient, and enjoyable experience. With the SOPROLIFE intraoral camera, we can do just that. To learn more, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
