Intraoral cameras help our dentist and team to more closely examine your smile. They are also an excellent educational tool, allowing you to see and understand what is happening in your mouth and follow up on your treatment results. The pictures captured by intraoral cameras may also be sent to dental specialists and to insurance companies if needed.
Intraoral cameras are small, pen-like devices. They are quick and comfortable to use and are easily maneuverable. This allows our dentist to capture images of all areas of your mouth so that he can examine even the most difficult-to-reach areas. The high-quality color images captured by the camera are instantly transmitted to a nearby monitor and magnified to give a clear view of the inside of your mouth. This makes it easy to diagnose dental problems such as:
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Tooth decay and cavities
- Damaged teeth, including cracks, chips and fractures
Once we understand your exact oral health needs, our dentist can plan treatments tailored to meet those needs and give you back a healthy and functional smile.
