Cariboo Dental Clinic in Williams Lake gets high-tech with the use of digital technology. We use an array of digital equipment during the course of performing dental care. Some of the advanced technology that we use at our office include, laser dentistry, blue-light Zoom! Whitening, digital imaging, and intraoral cameras.
Our dentist and staff use intraoral camera technology when explaining a dental diagnosis. By enabling our patients to view first-hand what problem areas the dentist is referring to, they are able to better understand their diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera which can navigate easily in the mouth. Some intraoral cameras measure a little as a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows us to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, we can see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also allow us to save the images we captured during your oral examination, to our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These treatments can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
