The intra oral camera is an advanced piece of high tech equipment that offers great quality imagery inside your mouth. It’s basically a tiny video camera placed inside your mouth, where it takes numerous images in places that dentists can have a hard time seeing.
The images can then be magnified and displayed on a computer monitor where the dentist can study it to make their diagnoses and offer their recommended treatments. You can see the problem for yourself as well, and you’ll know what the dentist is talking about when you discuss the treatment options together.
It’s not really new technology as it was introduced back in the 1990s. But nowadays its use is widespread. We’ve found them to be an effective way to diagnose conditions such as cracked teeth and tooth decay, and they’re excellent for educating patients about their current oral health.
