What is an intra-oral camera?
Intra-oral cameras are small devices that provide a way of obtaining images through a computer. Instead of telling a patient what is going on in their mouth, the dentist can display what they see on a monitor for the patients themselves to view. In addition, the intraoral camera allows the dentist to take screenshots of the patient’s smile, which may be stored or sent to dental insurance companies as needed. These digital images are critical to helping patients understand their diagnosis and the importance of upcoming dental work that may be needed.
Does the use of the intra-oral camera hurt?
Absolutely not! The intra-oral camera is incredibly small and gets amazing detail through a hand-held, wand-like device. This device captures details of the gums and teeth and may even show patients issues such as gum recession or broken teeth and restorations. By showing patients the problem in greater detail, they often understand what needs to be done to restore their smile. Additionally, our team finds that dental insurance benefits are paid easier and faster, thanks to photographic proof of the problem at hand. This means faster approval and less cost for most restorative dental treatments.
