What is an intraoral camera?
An intraoral camera is a tool we use to get a closer look at different parts of your smile. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped tool that we can use to take color, high-quality photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other structures in your mouth as needed. Because the intraoral camera is so small and easily maneuverable, we can use it to see angles in your mouth that we cannot easily view with the unaided eye. We may utilize the intraoral camera in Juneau, Alaska, to better evaluate your oral health and to diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth.
What are the benefits of an intraoral camera?
In addition to helping our team get a better view of your smile, the images taken with the intraoral camera are also helpful for allowing you, our patient, to gain a deeper understanding of your oral health and dental treatments. We can also submit these photos to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we invite you to call or visit our dentist and dental team at Alaska Dental Arts soon.
