Dr. Lewis utilizes intraoral camera technology that greatly enhances your dental care. An intraoral camera is very small— in some cases, just a few millimeters long—and creates precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums. Enlarged on a screen visible to both staff and you, such high-definition images give the Penobscot Bay Dentistry staff—and you!—the opportunity to observe important details about your oral health that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. The result? A faster, more accurate diagnosis, which can mean less chair-time and less expense for you.
Intraoral technology also enables our practice to securely store images, providing a permanent record of your dental condition and treatment. As needed, these images can be shared with other specialists, labs and insurance companies.
