Intraoral Camera – Accra, Ghana
See Your Smile in Hi-Def
Many people do not have a clear idea of the actual state of their dental health. Even with lights and mirrors, a patient cannot see what the dentist can see. Well, not anymore.
At Bethel Dental Clinic, we use intraoral cameras. When you visit our clinic, you can sit comfortably and be an active participant in your dental care. The dentist will insert a pen-sized, camera-tipped wand into your mouth. Covered with a disposable plastic sheath for contamination prevention, this camera simply takes a video of the inside of your mouth and transmits the images to a computing unit. The computing unit enlarges the full-color images and sends them to a TV screen that you can comfortably view from the dental chair or the consulting room. There it is – your mouth will be on the screen. The dentist can point out problem areas and explain his recommendations for treatment allowing you to become an informed partner in your dental care instead of a clueless bystander.
Consider this experience as the first step toward a healthier, fresher smile. The camera may reveal the early stages of potentially serious problems, allowing you the opportunity to prevent small problems before they escalate. This is especially helpful with gum disease and other conditions that cause damage without causing pain. The camera's honest survey can also show you how your regular home hygiene routine is paying off. We can recommend ways to improve how you care for your teeth at home, based on our findings.
