Intraoral Camera Technology at The McHenry Dentist

Improving Our Patients Dental Experience

We’ve found that sometimes it’s difficult for our patients to understand the condition of their teeth the way that we do. 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 our doctors are seeing. This dramatically improves your dental experience by helping you understand why we would recommend certain treatments.

Why We Use An Intraoral Camera

Our goal here at The McHenry Dentist 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 for 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 plaque.

Here at The McHenry Dentist we service patients throughout Johnsburg, Illinois, and invite you to give a call to one of our friendly staff members. Our main phone number is (815) 363-0103. You can also shoot us a quick email with any questions that you may have. 

We look forward to serving you.
