Using An Intraoral Camera At Your Dental Appointment
“Open wide!” It’s a request heard at every dental appointment, and it’s designed to allow your dentist or hygienist to see into your mouth. However, no matter how wide you open, there are still areas that are very hard to see.
That’s where an intraoral camera comes in. This lightweight, slim tool allows your dentist to see into areas and behind teeth in a way the naked eye can’t. It has a lens on its tip that captures images and transmits them to a computer in real-time. The dentist can take pictures with the camera that can be further analyzed.
Your teeth, especially your molars and wisdom teeth, can sometimes hide important dental issues. With an intraoral camera, these problems can be detected and treated. The dentist or hygienist can see detailed, enlarged images as they move the camera around. This lets them view the condition of teeth, gums, cavities, and more. Best of all, this process is comfortable and painless for you, the patient.
The newest intraoral cameras include features like auto-focus, LED lighting, and magnification up to 100X.
