Digital Intraoral cameras are utilized in all phases of diagnosis, consultation, and treatment at the practice of Dr. Sangiv I Patel. By using these small, pen-like devices, our practice is able to view precise, enlarged images of your mouth, teeth, gums, and tissues. With these clear, well-defined, high-resolution images, details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations are exposed. This means you truly receive an evidenced-based diagnosis that is faster but most importantly more accurate. It even allows for a real-time comparison of your previously diagnosed dental conditions. Additionally, the captured photos enable your personalized consult geared to help you to fully understand and discuss your dental problems, concerns and solutions. The intraoral camera system is also used during treatment to give Dr. Patel a better visualization leading to improved treatment results and increase the longevity of treatments received. During your consultation at private practice Sangiv I. Patel, D.D.S., PA in Melbourne, FL, we can demonstrate the benefits of our intraoral cameras systems, just ask us.

Any patient who desires a proper diagnosis with complete understanding of their ailments, the materials and processes utilized during treatment and final results achieved, is an ideal candidate for our intraoral camera systems. The cameras do not utilize radiation and are considered very safe. Our Intraoral Cameras also enable our practice to save your images to provide a digital record of treatments. These images can be shared with you, labs, other specialists, and insurance companies.
What To Expect
With a shape and size similar to that of a pen, an intraoral camera is a small, comfortable instrument that will transmit live video from your mouth to a monitor. Dr. Patel and our team can capture images on the screen to be used in a more intensive analysis by Dr. Patel to aid in the comprehensive diagnosis and development of your treatment options.
By allowing you and Dr. Patel to view the images on a monitor at the follow-up consultation, a more informed treatment plan is produced since the benefits, risks alternatives, and the consequences of delayed diagnosis and treatment are discussed visually with you at that appointment. This deeper understanding of your dental health and treatment options empower you to make a more informed decision regarding your treatment solutions. Finally, we share before, during and after images of your treatment at each visit. We share the rationales, progress, results achieved, and prognosis after treatment, a truly immersive dental experience for your benefit.
