What exactly is an intraoral camera? The intraoral camera is a powerfully precise diagnostic tool that has only been available in recent years. This amazing advancement in technology allows the dentist to see at obscure, hard to reach angles and view them on a large screen. The whole mouth can be scanned carefully on a monitor in order to get the most visual information possible. We also use this great tool to educate you as a patient since we can explain what we see on the screen to you and help you have a better understanding of your own oral health. In this world of insurance companies needing exact evidence in order to cover treatments, these images help you provide the needed information to qualify for coverage.
