Envisioning better oral health with an intraoral camera in Berkeley, CA

Every dental procedure is different, but they all have something in common. That is a visual exam. Whether you are just having a checkup or planning to get implants, your dentist will need to look inside of your mouth. This step might seem especially mundane, but like other aspects of dentistry, it can be greatly enhanced with modern technology. Dr. Ruhi Sangha and Dr. Praj Kamat of Transcendentist in Berkeley, CA use an intraoral camera to take visual exams to the next level.

What is an intraoral camera?

If you are imagining trying to open your mouth extra-wide in order to accommodate a camera, don’t worry. This ultra-small camera is about the size of a pen, making it easy to navigate around the small spaces in a patient’s mouth, even when seeing children.

The intraoral camera helps your dentist to see each tooth, even behind molars, much more clearly than an old-fashioned dental mirror would allow. It has another tremendous advantage, which is the fact that it can record and transmit these images. That means your dentist can refer to them later, enlarge them for greater detail, and share them with you.

Benefits of the intraoral camera

Dr. Ruhi Sangha and Dr. Praj Kamat are not just in the business of repairing teeth. They are dedicated to improving patients’ overall health and total wellness. Performing dental treatment with good results is a part of that, but there is much more. They also want to deliver that treatment in the gentlest and least intrusive way possible. Moreover, they hope to help patients avoid the need for major treatment by helping them understand their own oral health needs. The intraoral camera plays a role in meeting all these goals.

  • The ability to see teeth from various angles and enlarge images improves diagnostics
  • Images can be displayed on screen, allowing you to quite literally see what your dentist is seeing
  • Recorded images can be kept on file, providing much more accurate reference than simply remembering what we saw
