Have you ever said to a patient, “Let me take a look?” Of course, haven’t we all? Then, because your intraoral camera isn’t working due to some software glitch, or it’s down the hall so another team member can use the equipment, or you just don’t have an intraoral camera, you hand the patient a mirror and attempt to get them to see what you see. Just describing this situation is frustrating! If the patient can’t see the problem, case acceptance is just that much more elusive. With today’s economy and patients fixing only what’s broken, they really need to see what you see; after all, seeing is believing!
