What is an Intraoral Camera?
An intraoral camera helps KFA Dental Excellence provide a thorough and comprehensive dental examination. By using one of these small, pen-like tools, our highly skilled dentists may have a better, high-resolution view of your gums and teeth. An intraoral camera is able to capture various angles of your teeth and gums and can even take a live video that can be shown on a screen. In addition, it can provide a more precise diagnosis and help you to fully understand your problem. The intraoral camera system may also be used during a treatment to provide our team a greater visual of your mouth. During your initial consultation, we can demonstrate the advantages of intraoral cameras to attain a more accurate dental examination and treatments.
"Dr. Ferrari and the entire team at KFA Dental are amazing. Working for an orthodontist for over 10 years I have heard so many wonderful things so when it came to my own dental care, I knew where I wanted to go. From the first visit to my recent fillings, they make everything so seamless and comfortable, and I am highly sensitive!! Thank you so much for making my experience such a wonderful one!"- M.K. / Google / Mar 07, 2020

"I started going to KFA Dental around 8 years ago. They are the BEST by far! Everyone in the office is kind, compassionate and professional. My dental Hygenist, Melissa, and my dentist, Dr Aldieri, have taken excellent care of me. They are truly concerned with my overall health, In addition to my dental needs. If you are considering switching, look no further. This is the place to get the absolute best care!"- E.W. / Google / Feb 29, 2020
"I have been going to this dental practice for more than 25 years and couldn't imagine getting dental work done anywhere else. They have moved from their original location and have added 2 dentists over the years but a practice I always loved got even better over time. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience there. The office is modern and immaculate. When you arrive for your appointment, you are immediately greeted by the friendly staff at the reception desk. The office is run like clockwork so you never have to wait very long. Once called in, you are personally escorted to your dental chair (which has a massage option) where they go out their way to make you feel extremely comfortable. You get personalized attention to discuss any problems or concerns you may be having in your mouth. This office has all the latest and greatest in technology to make your experience the best it can be. The dentists, hygienists and all staff members are great people who are very caring and dedicated to their profession. My family of five are all patients and although my older children moved away from the area, they return to have all their dental work done by KFA Dental!"- K.S. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"I have been a long time patient of Dr. Ferrari and moved to Manhattan 6 years ago. Due to no longer having a car, I had decided that maybe it was time to find a dentist in closer proximity to me. I was a dental assistant in the past and I am very particular when it comes to who touches my teeth. I took a chance trying someone new and although they were ok, they weren’t Dr. Ferrari. I decided to return back to KFA this year - I had to bottle a friends car - but when it comes to my teeth, I can’t just let anyone touch them. This office is very thorough, super clean, and their staff is amazing. From the front desk, to the assistants I always leave with a nice bright smile on my face. I highly recommend KFA dental, especially Dr Ferrari and no matter where I move to, I will always find a way to make my way back to their offices."- A.O. / Google / Feb 17, 2021
How Will I Benefit from an Intraoral Camera?
While a small device, using an intraoral camera to view the gums and teeth can be extremely beneficial for you and your dentist. It can help you understand your dental issues by showing you a clearer image, or in some cases a video, of the problem you are experiencing in your mouth. This handy instrument helps your dentist to provide a more precise diagnosis and makes it easier to decide on your treatment. This device is just one of the cutting-edge technologies KFA Dental Excellence is using to provide Farmingdale, NY patients a superior dental experience.
How Will the Intraoral Camera Be Used?
With a size and shape similar to a pencil, an intraoral camera is a flexible instrument that will transmit live video and images from inside your mouth to a digital monitor. Your dentist will slip the camera over your gums and teeth while watching the images on the screen. We will likely capture images that will be used in a more intensive evaluation of your mouth. By allowing you and our team members to view the pictures on a monitor, a more informed decision and treatment plan can be created together. This can ultimately allow you to have a better understanding of your oral health and better communication with the friendly staff at KFA Dental Excellence.
Is There Follow-Up with the Intraoral Camera?
If a problem is detected using the intraoral camera, a member of our dental team will talk with you about the proper treatment choices available to take care of the issue discovered. After a plan is confirmed, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment(s) at KFA Dental Excellence to start your treatment. Usually, intraoral cameras are beneficial in catching an issue early so your treatment may take less time and be less invasive. The camera can also be utilized during your treatment to make it even more successful.
Using an intraoral camera throughout your dental examination or procedure allows us to more precisely review your mouth and work with more accuracy. At KFA Dental Excellence, we are proud to offer this equipment to better treat you and your family.
