Athens, GA Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Robert Pate Introduces Intraoral Camera Technology
Date:7/30/2013

Athens, GA (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

At Athens Family Dental in Athens, Georgia, Dr. Robert Pate has recently introduced the use of intraoral camera as an effective diagnostic tool. This advanced technology allows for better views of the inside of a patient’s mouth, making it easier to make diagnoses and therefore provide better, more comprehensive overall treatment.

Intraoral cameras are not a replacement for X-rays, which provide valuable information needed to identify and treat all potential problems.

However, intraoral cameras can show the doctor what’s happening inside a patient’s mouth from many different angles. Patients are also able to view in real time the same images that the doctor is seeing on the monitor. This use of digital technology has also proven to be helpful in working with insurance companies to get acceptance for dental procedures.

This highly advanced equipment, which is approximately the size and shape of a dental mirror, is small and easy to maneuver in the mouth. Patients are taken on a virtual video tour of their mouths as the camera, with its own built-in light source, zooms in with up to 25 times magnification of individual teeth. The patient and dentist can view these images and discuss problems and options together.

“We have implemented the use of intraoral cameras in order to enhance our diagnostic capabilities and to see beyond what the X-rays can show us,” said Dr. Robert Pate, dental implants dentist in Athens, GA. “With this technology, we can get a more accurate picture of what’s really going on in a patient’s mouth. Because patients can see what we see, they can take a more involved role in their own treatment process.”

Because of the intraoral camera’s powerful magnification capabilities, as the patient views the inside of his/her mouth on the video monitor, Dr. Pate is able to observe and explain possible problems such as excessive wear, cracked teeth, broken fillings, plaque deposits, or cavities next to fillings. These are issues that can be overlooked when relying solely on X-rays.

Athens Family Dental provides a wide range of dental services to meet their patients’ variety of needs. These services include dental implants, extractions, dentures, bridges, as well as TMJ and emergency dentistry in Athens, GA. They also offer the use of sedation dentistry at their Athens, GA practice to help their patients have the most comfortable experience possible. Dr. Pate and his staff are devoted to helping people achieve optimal oral health through comprehensive and preventive care.
