Have you ever wondered what it is that your dentist sees in your mouth when you’re asked to open wide and say “Aaahh“?
With DC Smile Studio’s intraoral cameras, now you can see exactly what your dentist sees. Per a CDC study, approximately “64.7 million American adults, have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis, the more advanced form of periodontal disease,” most commonly known as gum disease. That can be hard to identify in oneself because let’s be realistic: a flashlight and a hand mirror only get you so far. With the high-tech intraoral cameras used by us at DC Smile Studio, you can now visualize any gum or tooth damage that you would not otherwise be able to see for yourself. Unlike traditional dental x-rays, DentalEconomics.com explains that the intraoral camera does not emit harmful radiation, and shows the interior of your mouth in real time. You are able to see exactly what your dentist sees, up close and personal, which can facilitate better education and even more comfort on your end as the patient. Here at DC Smile Studio, we lead with a patient-centric model, and employing the use of intraoral cameras plays a large part in that.
Our goal is to make your dental visit as easy as possible, without being intimidating or frightening. Our use of the intraoral camera better educates our patients about their own mouths, builds a personal rapport with our team, and is a cornerstone of our method of practice. At DC Smile Studio, we are Spanish/English bilingual, and our office is conveniently located on a Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) stop.
We are open for appointments from Monday through Friday, from 7:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Please contact us online or by phone at (202)-244-8780 to schedule your appointment with us today!
