Intraoral Camera

Intraoral Cameras Used in Dental Exams

Intraoral cameras are highly effective in identifying problem areas of the tooth and making dental impressions used for implants, crowns, and dentures. First introduced in 1989, these cameras allow both dentists and patients to see a detailed version of the mouth in vivid color.

What Is An Intraoral Camera?

An intraoral camera is a special tool that dentists use to get a highly detailed view of every tooth. They take a picture of each tooth and broadcast it on a screen so dentists and patients can review them together.

The video and pictures can be saved on a computer and magnified up to 30 times so a dentist can look at and address specific problems.

How Do the Pictures Help Treatment?

Intraoral cameras can help your dentist in two ways. First, it helps with both assessment and diagnosis. This can come in handy when coordinating treatment for cavities, and gum diseases. It also helps figure out the extent of plaque on the teeth or the exact damage done to a chipped or cracked tooth.

The second purpose of these types of cameras is to create a digital impression of the mouth. This makes getting things like implants or crowns much more convenient and pleasant because patients no longer have to put bad-tasting materials in their mouths or deal with bulky X-ray trays that can cause them to gag.

Intraoral Cameras Are Safer

Patients love the intraoral cameras because they are non-invasive. They resemble a wand and it is comfortably placed in your mouth for pictures. They produce no radiation so it’s the safest way to get detailed pictures and video on the market.
