- An image that speaks a thousand words. By offering your patient the opportunity to see what you are seeing, he will immediately understand the necessity of the treatment. There will no longer be any need to convince him.
- By showing the area to be treated, you will be able to keep your patient informed and involved in oral health matters. The patient is no longer only “subjected” to treatment. He understands what you are doing and why you are doing it.
- Through improved and more frequent communication, you will form a confident and close relationship with your patients.
- A patient is always reluctant to pay for what he cannot see. If he is not suffering, he will not feel the need for the treatment.
- Create a surprise effect: the intra-oral camera adds an amusing and new aspect to the treatment session.
- Motivation for all types of treatment (prophylaxis, restoration, esthetics).
- Development of patient loyalty: patients who are more confident and motivated by the continuation of treatment will return to the dentist more often.
- Valorization of the practice image.
- Studies done in the United States1 have shown that income from cosmetic and prosthetic treatments increases by 35 to 40% in practices which use an intra-oral camera.
By optimizing exposure times, we can reduce the radiation to which patients are exposed by 95% compared with conventional film.
