What is an intraoral camera?
Intraoral cameras are small, pen-like devices. They are simple to maneuver, allowing our dentists and team to view all areas of your mouth easily, including areas that would otherwise be impossible to access.
Are intraoral cameras uncomfortable?
No. Intraoral camera are non-invasive and should not cause you any discomfort.
How does using an intraoral camera benefit me?
Intraoral cameras capture detailed, color photos of the inside of your mouth. These images are then transferred instantly to a nearby monitor where you and our dentists can view the images. Our dentists can then help you understand your oral health and treatment options based on those images. Intraoral cameras are used to check for developing problems (such as tooth decay, gum disease and tooth damage) in addition to following up on treatments you have previously received. We can also send the captured images to specialists and to insurance companies as needed.
