Intraoral cameras are only about the size of a pen, and they allow us to see the state of your teeth and gums more clearly. The small size of these cameras allows us to get closer to your teeth to inspect anything from cracks and chips to worn fillings. The images taken with these cameras as then sent to the computer where we can easily see and diagnose potential problems earlier than what used to be possible with more traditional techniques. Your dentist is also able to keep you up to date on the process as the photos taken with the intraoral camera are displayed immediately in your exam room. So if you have any questions about your oral hygiene, our dentist will be right there to answer them for you.
