Healthy Smiles Dental Center West Plains Missouri Ricky Cornish DDSEach treatment room is equipped with an intra-oral camera and a 19-inch monitor. The hygienist and dentist use this camera to obtain a closer look at any area or tooth of concern. The pictures generated also help the patient understand the problem and the need for treatment recommended. The old saying, ” A picture is worth a thousand words,” surely applies here. This technology is instrumental in performing thorough examinations and educating the patient. By making the problem visible, patients feel more comfortable about following the doctors recommended treatment.
