An intraoral camera is a valuable tool employed here at Gentle Smiles Dental to provide a closer and more detailed examination of various aspects of your oral health. This small, pen-shaped device captures high-quality color photographs of your teeth, gums and other areas within your mouth. Its compact size and maneuverability enable our dentist to explore angles and perspectives that would otherwise be difficult to discern with the naked eye.
The primary function of the intraoral camera is to enhance our ability to evaluate your oral wellbeing comprehensively. It assists in the diagnosis of dental issues such as tooth decay, periodontal disease and various forms of tooth damage, including cracks and chips. Furthermore, this camera proves invaluable in post-treatment assessments, ensuring that the dental work performed meets the highest standards of quality and precision.
Notably, the intraoral camera benefits both you and our dentist. The detailed images help facilitate a deeper understanding of your oral health and any recommended dental treatments. Captured images can also be conveniently shared with other dentists and specialists for collaborative consultations, and may also be submitted to dental insurance companies when necessary.
