Chances are that when you look in your mouth, you have difficulty seeing what we see, even when using a mirror. Use of an intraoral camera allows us to show our patients exactly what we see so you can gain a more relevant understanding of your dental conditions and treatment options. This often helps our patients make a better decision because knowledge is power!
An intraoral camera is a small handheld digital camera that can take a high-resolution image of a single tooth or an area of your mouth. We can even send these images to insurance companies who request more information about a procedure and store them in your digital chart for future comparisons when tracking a dental condition.
