What Are Intraoral Cameras?

Posted by Brighton dentistry on Jul 28 2015, 08:56 AM

Have you ever felt uncertain about a dentist’s diagnosis because you haven’t experienced any symptoms or pain from the condition? Well you don’t need to doubt anymore, you can see a dental condition with your own eyes through intraoral cameras.

Intraoral cameras were first introduced in the 1990’s and are being used by more dentists every day to help them diagnose oral health problems. An intraoral camera is about the size of a large pen and has a built-in light source to help it take videos and images of your mouth.

These digital, colored images can be 25 to 50 times their actual size. They show dentists more than what they can see reflected on the dental mirror or shown through an x-ray. Intraoral images can show several problems from periodontal disease to wear to cracks to tartar buildup.

Intraoral images can be sent to insurance companies or specialists for examination. Your dentist may even keep the images for a record of your oral health. These pictures can also help you understand what is going on with the health of your mouth by allowing you to see it. Call our office today to learn more about intraoral cameras.
