The intra-oral camera is a small camera that is used to see the insides of your mouth and to better observe your teeth. The camera live streams to a monitor so that both you and dentist get a high-resolution glimpse of what’s going on in your mouth in real time.
Intra-oral cameras give a new range of vision to your dentist. Because of their size and maneuverability, they can see your teeth at all angles. The camera has a rotating head, allowing it to view angles of your mouth that may be difficult for your dentist to see ordinarily. This helps in making a more accurate diagnosis. The camera also benefits you because you will be able to see exactly what your dentist sees. This makes it easier for us to explain what care you require and why, leading to an overall better understanding on your part and a higher-quality patient experience.
The intra-oral camera can also help document your health needs. Like digital radiography, images found by the intra-oral camera can be saved and documented to help monitor your treatment and progress. The images that it takes can be referenced at any time and easily archived. The intra-oral camera is a huge breakthrough in dental technology and we are proud to use it in our office.
