Intraoral Camera Technology at Barbara Young, DDS


Improving Our Patients’ Dental Experience

We’ve found that sometimes it’s difficult for our patients to understand the condition of their teeth the way that Dr. Young does. One way that we improve our patients dental experience is through the use of an intraoral camera in our diagnosis.

What Is an Intraoral Camera?

An intraoral camera is a small, pen-like device with a camera on the end. The camera contains a bright LED, which helps us diagnose cavities or fractures that are difficult to see with the naked eye. The camera is connected to a monitor, allowing you to see up close what Dr. Young is seeing. This dramatically improves your dental experience by helping you understand Dr. Young’s reasoning behind treatment recommendations.

Why We Use an Intraoral Camera

Our goal here at Barbara Young, DDS is to make your experience as positive and effective as possible, which is why we use an intraoral camera in our diagnostic process.
