The intraoral camera is a vital tool in diagnosing various dental conditions including tooth decay, and chipped or cracked teeth. It is also helpful in educating patients about their current state of oral and dental health. To be able to see on a monitor what your dentist is seeing in real time can help you, the patient, see what the issues are as well. Your dentist can point out areas of decay, where a tooth is fractured, or an area that requires treatment for gum disease. Seeing where you are lacking in your oral hygiene routine can be a great way to stop further damage to your teeth and gums.
The intraoral camera helps your dentist save time by taking multiple images at one time. These images can be re-taken, printed, and shared if needed with your dental insurance companies if they require additional information to approve your claim. This allows for a quicker approval process because images can now be emailed instead of sent my standard mail.
