What is an intraoral camera?
Intraoral cameras were first used in dental clinics at the end of the 1980s. Today, they are a frequently-used diagnostic tool. The tool is slightly larger than a pen and has a small camera on its tip that is linked to a computer, enabling you and the dentist to see the inside of your mouth.
This non-intrusive tool can enlarge the examined area up to 60 times its actual size. The intraoral camera is also a communication tool. By offering a visual support, it enables the dentist to better explain the consequences of a dental problem or the expected results of a dental procedure. With more information at hand, you can make an informed decision about your oral health.
What can an intraoral camera detect?
- Deterioration or defects in existing restorations
- Cracks or fissures
- Abnormal wear
- Soft tissue abnormalities (tongue, palate, inside cheeks)
- Early-stage cavities
