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.

"• Wish I had the mindset earlier in life to take personal time out for myself and develop a routine Floss-Floss-Floss. • Went every 6 months to the dentist and did what I thought was right. Was comfortable with where I was and felt I was receiving the best care. Then I came across Dr. Patel and found the care could be even better. His artistry and technology make him superior in the care he provides. • I decided to become engaged in my dental journey and make a commitment on my part for Dr. Patel to help me. • My TMJ disorder used to cause headaches, popping in my jaw and pain. One day I woke up and realized I hadn’t taken any Ibuprofen in days because I was finally feeling relief. I noticed that my overall quality of life began to change, and I no longer felt the stress and pain I had experienced for so long. • I think for everyone, money is a factor when it comes to taking care of themselves. I decided to invest in myself, and it has become the best gift I could’ve received. • Time is not a factor, and you are the priority at Dr. Patel’s office. The saying “Love the one you’re with” comes to mind every time I call the office or go in for an appointment. Each staff member makes you feel as though you’re the only one present and they’ve got all the time in the world for you. • I challenge any other doctor to have the same passion for dentistry and compassion for their patients as Dr. Patel does. If you go to Dr Patel, you will never change dentists again!"- D.B. / Google / Dec 06, 2021

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.
