At Jeff M. Morrison & Assoc., DDS, we use intraoral cameras (small cameras about the size of a pen) to help clearly see the condition of your teeth and gums. Specialized hand-held wands quickly capture the details of your teeth and gums. With this advanced technology we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips, and worn metal fillings with extreme precision. The full-color images taken with the intraoral camera are sent to a chairside computer screen so we can clearly see and diagnose dental problems. Because our patients are also able to see the images, they are able to gain a better understanding of their dental problems and the procedures that Dr. Morrison may recommend. As an added benefit, dental insurance benefits frequently pay easier with the visual proof of a captured image in our records.
