An Intra-oral Camera is helpful in allowing us to see everything going on inside your mouth. Rather than a typical examination, this camera magnifies everything that it looks at concerning your smile. This allows us to see areas of decay, cracks, breaks and fractures as well as other intra-oral problems. The camera is safe, effective and can be used on patients of all ages.
The reason an intra-oral camera may be needed is because we need to get a better view inside the mouth. Because the camera magnifies what it's coming into contact with, we are able to spot problems easier and more conveniently. Likewise, we can show you the findings on the camera so that you know more about the treatment that is needed. The camera is an effective tool that we use everyday in our practice.
The majority of our patients coming into our office are good candidates for Intra-oral Camera. The scan is painless, quick and provides us with highly-detailed imaging. In fact, we may even use this scan for pediatric patients who are undergoing orthodontic treatment. You can feel confident in the technology being used in our office to take these digital dental impressions.
The appointment will begin by you sitting comfortably in one of our examination rooms. We then use a handheld device and place it inside the mouth. The image will show on our computer screen in the room, which allows you to see what is being done and what we're looking at. We then scan your mouth with the camera, looking for problems and other issues. We then discuss treatment options according to what we find and what works best for you. The camera is easy to use and takes just minutes in our office.
