Intraoral Camera


Advancements in dental technology have made it substantially easier to optimize your oral health. Giri Palani, DDS, FICOI and Dr. Palani strives to not only provide you with the best possible oral care, they also strive to help you understand your oral healthcare needs. In order to do so, they employ the use of an intraoral camera. What is an Intraoral Camera?

An intraoral camera is a small electronic device that looks fairly similar to a large pen. It functions just like the small metal mirror you’re most likely familiar with, only with more features. An intraoral camera allows us to examine the inside of your mouth, with the real-time feed displayed on a monitor. Not only that, but images can be captured to get a better view of potential problem areas.

Patient Education


The main reason we use an intraoral camera is to help you better understand your oral healthcare needs. Without the ability to see what he sees, you may not understand why you need certain procedures or even believe that the problem is all that bad. An intraoral camera allows you to see exactly what we see as we examines your mouth. We can then take images and point out the problems to you, such as decay or bad fillings. With these images, we can help you to understand why we recommends the treatments that we do.

Benefits of the Intraoral Camera


While patient education is the main reason for using an intraoral camera, it also offers a number of other benefits as well. One big benefit is that it helps to build trust between you and Giri Palani, DDS, FICOI. The dentist is often the source of anxiety for many people, and the main reason that those people avoid seeking dental care. When you sit down in the chair, you have no idea what is going on inside your mouth. All you are aware of is the sounds and sensations, which can be the source of fear. The intraoral camera provides you with a view of everything that is going on inside your mouth, which helps to alleviate fear and build a trusting relationship.

Other benefits of an intraoral camera include:
•  Giri Palani, DDS, FICOI can zoom in on certain areas of your mouth, or enhance still images, allowing him to get a better view of your mouth. He can see the smallest details and pinpoint issues early, before they become serious problems.
•  Images can be stored in a digital file, and accessed right away during your appointment. They can then be used to monitor the progress of treatments during subsequent visits.
•  You get a clear picture of what is happening inside your mouth, rather than trying to conjure an image based on a description.
•  You gain a etter understanding of your oral care needs and can see the importance of receiving treatment as soon as possible.
•  You can take the images home with you to monitor potential problem areas. With an image to compare your current oral status to, any changes can be noticed right away, allowing you to contact us as soon as possible for treatment.

Intraoral cameras are beneficial to both Giri Palani, DDS, FICOI and to you. With the camera, Giri Palani, DDS, FICOI can get a much more up close and personal view of your mouth and helps you to understand why he is recommending specific treatments. Call us today at (310) 894-8337 to learn more!
