There are several reasons why we use digital intra-oral imaging in our office. These photos are used to supplement the treatment plan visit, making it easier for patients to see and understand what’s happening in their mouth. Having this technology accessible in each of our operatories it allows the dentist to capture images throughout the treatment process. By revealing several steps of the procedure to patients through digital imaging, they are able to gain a better understanding of the treatment itself.
Intra-oral photos are often needed for preauthorization by insurance companies as well.
