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.
"Well I'm back again for some work on my front teeth that were so thin they were translucent & breaking. Asthough I was nervous about having to get crowns on the front Dr Patel convinced me to do it. They're perfect, natural looking & I love smiling now! Thanks again to my dentist with the amazing memory which he uses it to supplement his extensive records for each patient. Dr Patel has many of the latest dental "toys" and knows how to use them. The office staff is equally friendly and well versed in their respective areas. When I was a relatively new patient my son-in-law was visiting and broke a front tooth the evening before he was to speak to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Dr Patel had him come right in and spent several hours making him a new tooth. That's the kind of devotion to his practice that makes it so special. Now that I have finished putting his children through college, (just kidding) I will continue to insure his comfortable retirement! As you might have guessed, we do have some fun giving the staff a hard time."- M.C. / Google / Mar 31, 2021
"Dr Sangvi I Patel is by far the best dentist I have ever been too. I had an emergency and he got me in the next day. My current dentist at the time would not do that for me and I had have been going there for 12 years . Dr Patel is meticulous, he loves what he does, it shows. He makes sure you do not fill any pain during procedures. He will be my dentist as long as I live in Florida and if I move I will fly in to see him. Yes ,he Is that good. All of his staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him to anyone needing A great dentist."- S.R. / Google / Mar 30, 2021

"This office is totally caring about my mouth! I have never been anywhere where they think about my care and how best to make better for me. I showed up yesterday and had a new hygienist. Made me a little nervous. She was so good. She did not use the water pick on me. She did the hand pick to get tartare off. She was amazing and did the best job! Her name is Rosie! She was amazing. Then I found put that they had thought about me before I got there and decided this would be better for me! All I can say is wow! What a wonderful place! I love them all and so thankful for the great work they are doing! My mouth has never looked so good! Thank you Dr Patel and all of your amazing staff!!"- C.C. / Google / Jan 26, 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.
