dr feuerstein 75x99.jpg Your Swiss Army Knife for Diagnosis and Patient EducationThere are many multi-use, intraoral cameras on the market that offer dentists the tools they need for documentation, diagnosis, and patient education. Paul Feurstein, DMD, believes the SoproCARE is one of the few intraoral cameras that excels across the board in resolution, lighting, and the ability to zoom in on specific areas.

When less obvious issues are affecting the patient, like incipient caries or gingival inflammation, this is where the SoproCARE device becomes a Swiss army knife of diagnosis and education.

Here are a few examples:

  • In asymptomatic teeth, a patient can be alerted to existing fractures that may lead to larger problems.
  • Digital radiography still has some uncertainties when a practicitioner finds a “stick.” The caries mode clearly shows red/black areas on a black and white background, allowing both the practitioner and patient to agree on treatment, making SoproCARE an invaluable tool.
  • The perio mode lights up areas of Gingival inflammation, plaque, and tartar that are easily seen by the patient, promoting improved home care as well as treatment.
