Now that intraoral camera prices have dropped, any dentist can afford to have one. And, since patients are more likely to agree to dentist-recommended treatments when they actually can see the conditions in their mouths that require treatment, dentists can`t afford to be without a computer screen at chairside that is linked to the intraoral camera and its images of the patient`s condition. But there still is a challenge in getting full value from the investment: most computer systems are unable to work with all cameras. Some systems will work only with one particular brand. That means that the chance for a patient to see a powerful projected image of his/her condition on a computer screen is reduced unless the dentist has a computer system offering universal linkage to any intraoral camera. There is one computer system for dental offices that works with virtually every brand and model of intraoral camera: Windent 95 from Advanced Applications. Windent 95 also will capture and store camera images for future use.
Call Advanced Applications at (800) 466-5455 for further details. A demonstration system is available at low cost.
