To better diagnose and understand a patient’s oral history as well as educate patients on new treatment needed, Dr. Smoot utilizes intra-oral photography routinely. Dr. Smoot strongly believes “a picture is worth a thousand words.” There are many benefits to using an intra-oral camera. The camera is non-invasive and similar in size to the dental mirror. The compact size and the cameras ability to magnify minor issues make it a great diagnostic tool. Feel free to ask the doctor about an intra-oral photographic exam to help detect minor issues before they become big problems.
