Intraoral cameras process information through computers and TV screens. Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with high tech practice.
Intraoral cameras help enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An Intraoral Camera is a very small camera, in some cases, just a few millimeters long and it allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth, and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
