Continually evolving technology has made dentistry so much easier than in the "old days." One valuable diagnostic tool available at the Idaho Falls Dental Group is the "intra-oral camera." This is a small wand-like camera that will take very close-up views of teeth, fillings, cavities and soft tissue structures inside the mouth. This not only helps the dentist, but the patient also can see the problem rather than just having it explained to him/her. In this instance, a picture really is worth a thousand words.
