Our dentist and team may use an intraoral camera to assess and diagnose any oral health issues. This is a small, wand-shaped device that our dentist will insert into your mouth to take detailed photos of your teeth, gums and surrounding areas. These are enlarged images that provide our dentist and team with the views they need to identify any problems. This small device enables us to view angles of your mouth not possible with the naked eye. The intraoral camera will not cause any pain or discomfort and has no side effects.
Uses of the intraoral camera include:
Intraoral cameras are very beneficial for providing our patients with the best possible care. This technology allows us to educate our patients on exactly what is going on with their oral health. It is important that patients understand the treatments they receive. With this technology, we are able to walk them through issues and why following treatments may be necessary.
