What Is an Intraoral or Mouth Camera?
A mouth camera or intraoral camera is a tool that our dentist uses to obtain clear, accurate, and precise images of your mouth. We use a small, handheld dental camera to obtain high-resolution images of your mouth and evaluate real-time footage on a monitor screen as we conduct our examination. Our intraoral camera allows us to evaluate your dental and oral health in extreme detail, so we can make diagnoses more accurately and determine which dental procedures you need. It also increases your comfort as a patient, as it makes exams faster, more precise, and less intrusive.
What Are Intraoral Dental Cameras Used For?
Intraoral dental cameras are an amazing innovation in diagnostic and preventive dental services. They allow your dentist to assess, evaluate, and diagnose dental issues much more precisely and much faster than ever before. We can use the information obtained from our dental camera to obtain early detection of oral and dental health issues that will only get worse over time. With early intervention, we can find the safest and most effective method of treatment to slow or prevent the progression of the problem. We use our intraoral camera for:
- Assessing and diagnosing plaque formation, dental cavities, periodontal and gum disease, cracked or broken teeth and fillings, and other oral and dental issues
- Completing oral cancer screenings
- Providing patient education and information
- Tracking the progression and/or treatment of dental and oral health issues
- Obtaining information necessary to proceed with cosmetic dentistry services
When You Should Ask Your Dentist About Using a Dental Camera
You should ask your dentist to use a dental camera as part of your dental exam to improve your comfort and increase the thoroughness of the dental exam. Using an intraoral camera offers your dentist valuable information about the state of your oral and dental health so they can make personalized recommendations and offer early intervention. Consider asking your dentist about using a dental camera in these circumstances:
- At your first appointment with a new dentist
- To evaluate how well treatment is working
- To determine the cause of tooth or jaw pain, bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity, and other symptoms
- To obtain more knowledge about your own oral and dental health
- To assess the progression of an existing dental cavity, plaque, tooth decay, or gum disease
- For early detection of oral health issues you’re at risk for
- To better understand the advised treatment method
