What are Intraoral Cameras?
Intraoral cameras are small cameras that are about the size of a thin marker. Their high-tech cameras allow dental hygienists to view all of the parts of your mouth and take high resolution pictures. These pictures are then saved and put in your file. We can pull the pictures out whenever we want and refer to them while you're in the office.
If we are able to really see your whole mouth, it helps us to make treatment plans and goals for your teeth. Also, because it's a camera, you can see everything the dental professional is seeing, so you will understand exactly what they are talking about.
The best part about intraoral cameras is that they are less invasive for the patient. Through the use of cameras, hygienists are able to see everything going on in your mouth without all the poking and prodding, which is better for everyone. Many people shy away from getting their teeth looked at because they think the dental procedures are uncomfortable, and they don't like people poking around in their mouths. The good news is that with intraoral cameras, there's a lot less of the discomfort.
If you have questions about intraoral cameras, why not give us a call today? We can make you an appointment so that you can see the cameras for yourself. We love talking about all of the latest advancements in dental technology that work to make your experience the best possible.
