Intra oral cameras are high-resolution cameras that fit comfortably inside the mouth. These tiny cameras allow dentists to obtain accurate and detailed images of the inside their patients' mouths.
When is an intra oral camera used?
An intra oral camera is a useful chairside tool.
It allows the patient to be an active participant in his or her oral health, and get a better idea of what's going on.
The camera allows the dentist to get clear, detailed images of the mouth, which can be saved directly to the patient's file with a click of a button.
The intra oral camera allows our dental team to take accurate before and after pictures of dental restorations, and can also show the details of a damaged tooth with greater accuracy.
What are the benefits of an intra oral camera?
Before we had intra oral cameras, dentists showed their patients their teeth using a mirror. This often left a foggy picture at best.
The intra oral camera makes it possible to get an accurate photo of each tooth.
This means you can make informed decisions together with your dentist, and develop a treatment plan in collaboration.
