Intra-Oral Cameras

An Intra-Oral dental camera is one way we can show you your teeth as we see them. It’s a tiny video camera about the size of a pen. It has a disposable cover to prevent contamination and, as it’s moved from tooth to tooth, you can see a video on the computer screen nearby.

If it seems to us that you need some dental work, you can see the reason. The images can be stored and kept in your record; they can also be enlarged to show greater detail.

  • It shows us details that we could miss in a traditional visual examination
  • It provides accurate and detailed monitoring as your treatment progresses
  • It allows you to see your teeth as we see them, which allows you to understand more clearly what procedures might be necessary and why
