An intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped tool that can capture high-quality, colored photos of your teeth, gums, and additional dental structures. Due to its size, it is easy to maneuver and can view all angles of your smile, many of which cannot be seen unaided. Intraoral cameras are often used to evaluate your oral health and diagnose dental problems such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, and tooth damage. This device also allows us to assess a completed procedure during a follow-up visit.
Because the images capture by the camera can be viewed on a chairside monitor, you have the ability to gain a much better understanding of your current health and any dental treatments you have received. These photos can also be sent to other doctors and specialists, or to your insurance company if needed.
