When you read the phrase “dental photography,” what do you think of first? For most people, they imagine a patient being covered by a lead blanket, a dental assistant scurrying behind a wall to take photos, and grainy and indistinct images that really don’t provide much valuable information.
Times have changed, and there have been astonishing leaps forward in the field of dental technology. At Blue Sky Family Dentistry, we’re big believers in staying up to date with cutting-edge innovations, especially when it comes to dental photography. The fact is, we offer high-definition digital photography with every single exam, and we do that for two reasons.
First, it’s utilized as a diagnostic tool. When we take images of your teeth and gums from multiple angles, we’ve got the the ability to take a closer and more detailed look than the naked eye can provide. This allows us to create a treatment plan that’s far more accurate. Second, the more you see, the more you know. It’s one thing to be told a diagnosis by a dental professional. It’s quite another to see an enhanced image of your mouth and know exactly what’s being discussed.
By using highly specialized photographic dental equipment, we can spot problems faster. We can also view the color of your teeth under natural light and use that as a guide for creating dental restorations that are natural and beautiful. To have the smile you’ve always dreamed of, contact us by phone or online today.
