Carestream Dentists Grand Haven, MI

Benefits of a Carestream Camera

Our Grand Haven dentists use the Carestream 1600 camera because they understand its value for patient care. This intraoral camera looks much like an oversized pen, but is used to take detailed pictures of the inside of your mouth. While our dentists are able to examine your mouth with a hand mirror, the Carestream 1600 camera lets us display pictures on a screen so you can also see what’s happening inside your mouth.

Understand Oral Health Issues

It’s one thing for us to say you have a cracked tooth. It’s quite another for us to be able to show you a highly detailed picture of the tooth that needs to be fixed. The intraoral camera makes it easier for our dentists to communicate what treatments are needed in order to protect your oral health.

This camera can give us important insight into the oral issues you might have, including cavities, broken teeth, or other damage. It also allows you to take a proactive role in managing youroral health, as you’re able to easily see what we see.

Streamline Treatment

It’s not uncommon for your insurance provider to want visual proof before they’re willing to cover dental care. In this scenario, we’ll be able to provide high-quality images to your insurance provider, which helps streamline treatment.

Our family dentists use the latest dental instruments so patients receive the best care. We are always more than happy to answer any questions you might have about our dental technology, including the intraoral scanner.

At Grand Haven Smiles, we’re always willing to explain the dental technology we have available at your dental exam in order to help you make the best choice for your teeth. To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Haven, MI restorative dentists, give our office a call at (616) 209-4704.
