Intraoral cameras are a special type of camera developed specifically for use in dentistry. This handheld instrument allows us to show you images of your mouth so you get a clear picture of what’s happening and why treatment is necessary.
An intraoral camera is very small, about the size of a pen. Using this specialized equipment, we can share with you highly detailed images of your teeth and gums. This information helps you see what we see and also allows us to make an accurate diagnoses. The clear, enlarged images, show us details that may be missed during a standard visual exam.
The images we take with the intraoral cameras are stored digitally at our office. This allows us to develop a comprehensive history of your treatment and share it with your insurance company or specialists as needed.
