Intraoral Camera

We want you to see what we see

Here’s where an intraoral camera is the best educational tool we have.  When we tell you that you need a certain treatment, we find it so much more helpful if we can show you why.  Having our patients understand what needs to be done is very important to us and we work hard to make sure all treatment is understandable.

Intraoral Camera Provides You The Same View

An intraoral camera is about the size of a pen, so it fits easily into your mouth. Once positioned, it sends pictures to a computer monitor, where your teeth and gums appear in a full-color, usually as a very large image.  Fillings that are cracked and areas of decay are often easier to see than to feel. Want a copy of the image? We can print one for you. Take it home to help your spouse understand why you’re having dental treatment.
