During your checkup, your dentist finds a problem in your tooth and tries to explain it to you in simple terms. Yet, no matter how they describe it, you just can’t visualize what they’re talking about. If only there were a way to just see exactly what your dentist sees! Fortunately, there is – with a device called the Medit i500 intraoral camera. This amazing piece of dental technology allows Dr. Friedland to simply show you what’s going on in your mouth instead of having to explain it to you. This allows you to more thoroughly understand your oral health and make more well-informed decisions regarding your treatment. If you have questions about any of our dental technologies, don’t hesitate to call Friedland Family Dentistry of Pembroke Pines for more information.
An intraoral camera is a thin, lightweight wand with a camera at the tip that, when inserted into the mouth, can display images and video on a chairside monitor that a patient can view in real time. The Medit i500 has a smaller tip than most other intraoral cameras, increasing your comfort and allowing the dentist to maneuver the device more easily. The images displayed on the screen are in high definition with vivid color. It’s easy to see even the most miniscule flaws in a tooth, like chipped or cracked enamel. The i500’s 3D-in-motion video technology lets Dr. Friedland move the camera to different areas of your mouth quickly, without having to look at choppy results while the images lag.
In short, the Medit i500 is one of the most advanced and beneficial intraoral cameras currently available, and we can’t wait to show you how it works at your next appointment!
The main advantage of using this technology is that it vastly improves your experience in the dental chair. Instead of relying on our team members to describe what we’re seeing or using a complicated system of mirrors to see what’s going on, you can simply see for yourself. You have a clearer understanding of what exactly the problem is and how we can go about correcting it. Other benefits of the Medit i500 intraoral camera compared to traditional dental imaging systems include:
Our team will use the Medit i500 system as part of your biannual dental checkups. We can use this technology to show you any damaged portions of your smile and discuss treatment options. In addition, we can capture before and after images if you’re undergoing any restorative, orthodontic, or cosmetic treatments.
