Intraoral cameras are advanced dental tools that are used to get a closer look at oral health issues. The camera itself is a small, pen-shaped device. Because of its convenient shape and size, the intraoral camera can take pictures of the hard-to-reach areas at the back of the mouth.
The pictures taken by the intraoral camera can be shared during the appointment so that the patient can see exactly what the dentist examines. Intraoral cameras increase the understanding of oral health, which can help patients achieve their health goals. In addition, the images taken by the intraoral camera can be saved and sent to other dentists, doctors, or insurance agencies as necessary.
The intraoral camera makes going to the dentist easier for both the patient and the dental health provider.
