See What We See With An Intraoral Camera
Ever wonder how dentists examine the inside of your mouth? At Philadelphia Dental Smiles in Philadelphia, we use innovative technologies for our mouth exams, such as the intraoral camera.
What is an intraoral camera?
Intraoral cameras are highly useful pieces of equipment used within the dental industry. They help our dentist provide a more thorough and specialized exam. An intraoral camera is a small device, usually shaped like a pen, that records high-resolution images inside the mouth. It includes a light that helps illuminate the interior of the mouth.
What issues can intraoral cameras detect?
The intraoral camera can detect many conditions and problems, including cavities and broken fillings, small cracks or fractures in the teeth, deep discolorations, lesions, sores, or other wounds on the gums, signs of gum disease and oral cancer, and much more!
What are the advantages of an intraoral camera?
Some patients feel anxiety over having devices in their mouths. We work to ensure our patients feel comfortable and secure. The intraoral camera causes no pain and helps us to get a better view of what we are working with. The intraoral camera allows us to look at the inside of your mouth in high-definition. Plus, we can zoom in to get a much closer look at abnormalities. Once the camera is on and inside the mouth, it can be projected directly onto our monitors. This allows us to look at what we are recording in real time.
