iSmile utilizes intraoral cameras to more closely examine areas of your mouth that are difficult to see with the naked eye. This device also gives you a better understanding of your oral health and treatments, as the images captured are projected onto a nearby screen so that you can see them as well. Call us today to make your appointment with our dentists and learn more about intraoral cameras.
An intraoral camera is a tool we use to get a closer look at different parts of your smile. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped device that we can use to take high-quality color photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other areas of your mouth, as needed. Because the intraoral camera is so small and easily maneuverable, we can use it to see angles in your mouth that we cannot easily view with the unaided eye. In addition, we may utilize the intraoral camera to evaluate your oral health better and diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth. The intraoral camera is also helpful in following up after a treatment has been completed.
In addition to helping our team get a better view of your smile, images taken with the intraoral camera allow you, our patient, to understand your oral health and dental treatments better. We can also send these photos to other dentists and specialists and submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we invite you to call or visit our dentist and team soon.
