Sometimes, it’s hard to get a clear picture of just how your teeth really look. At Grand Dental Nichols Hills, we have an intra-oral camera to help you see what we see when you’re sitting in our dental chair.
We will use a special wand with a camera on the end that we will insert into your mouth. The intra-oral camera will take a video of the inside of your mouth and send the color images to a TV screen you can view from the comfort of the dental chair.
You’ll be able to see your teeth, up close and in full color. While the idea of seeing your teeth from this view may seem a bit overwhelming at first, it can prove to be helpful to your dental health in the long run. You can get a clearer view of the impact your brushing and flossing habits have on your teeth.
Our dentists can point out areas of concern and make sure that you fully understand what you need to work on. Instead of just telling you to focus on flossing between two teeth because a cavity could develop, they can show you exactly which two teeth it is. An intra-oral camera is a great tool to help our patients better understand their teeth and achieve better oral health.

Cavities are a very common dental health issue. Despite our best efforts to brush and floss, sometimes they can still occur. The best way to treat cavities is to find them as early as possible. At Grand Dental Nichols Hills, we use DIAGNOdent technology to help detect cavities in their infancy.
DIAGNOdent is a small, portable dental laser that can detect cavities earlier than any of the previously existing detection methods. This is a real benefit, because the earlier a cavity is detected, the smaller it is and thus the easier it is to repair the damage.
Our DIAGNOdent laser will scan your teeth, using laser reflection to find imperfections in your teeth. DIAGNOdent will alert us with an audible signal when a cavity is detected. Then, it will generate a numerical readout to give us an indication of the size of the cavity. This tool is a great asset in our ongoing quest to provide our patients with the best dental care possible.
