- Created in Technology
Slightly bigger than a pen, an intraoral camera is an innovative tool that can take up-close pictures of teeth, gums, and other hard-to-reach places in the mouth. Intraoral cameras can help dentists detect dental issues like tooth decay, periodontal disease, and oral cancers.
Benefits of using an intraoral camera:
- Oral health status
You and your dentist will be able to see with precision where you might need to brush or floss more, or how your current oral healthcare routine is working.
- Oral health tracking
You will be able to see the difference before and after a treatment, and the progress of a treatment over time.
- Diagnostic assistance
The intraoral camera can magnify images of your teeth and gums, which helps dental health professionals diagnose gum disease and cavities, and if caught early enough, help prevent them.
- More photos, more coverage
These photos can provide proof insurance companies need to give coverage.
