Intraoral cameras are amazing tools that are very helpful to dentists to observe the intricate parts of the patient’s mouth. It looks just like a hand-held wand with a camera at one of its tips. The camera will be gently placed inside the mouth and moved around to get a better view of the teeth, gums, tongue, and soft tissues of the mouth.
What are the advantages of intraoral cameras?
- Intraoral cameras allow the dentist to see difficult-to-view parts of the mouth, such as the rear surfaces of the frontal teeth, the anterior teeth, injured and inflamed tissues at the back of the mouth, etc.
- Minute details such as the cracks, cavities, tumors, tartar deposits, chipping, tooth wear, etc. can be analyzed in a better way.
- The intraoral camera directly relays the images on to a computer screen as we keep moving it around the mouth.
- It saves a lot of time for both the dentist and the patient.
