What is a Intra-oral Camera?

An intra-oral camera is a small, pen-like tool that we use to get a closer, more detailed look at different areas of your smile. Even though the intra-oral camera is small in size, it can take high-definition images that Dr. Collins can then use to evaluate your oral health. The camera’s small size also makes it easy for Diamond Dental team to move it around the mouth without causing the patient any discomfort. The camera can reach areas that are more difficult to see with the naked eye, and take images at various angles to provide a more detailed and comprehensive examination.

Why Intra-oral Cameras?

Intra oral cameras produce images that serve many purposes in a dentist’s office. Dr Collins uses intra-oral cameras for in-depth examination inside of a patients mouth. This allows for the Dr. Collins and a patient to either view a live video feed on a monitor while he is examining the patients mouth.
The intra-oral camera allows the dentist to instantly capture and store images of the problematic areas in the patient’s mouth. The imaging helps the dentist to discuss any problems that may have been found. Furthermore, it can also assist in cosmetic dentistry, tracking and monitoring general dental health and help the dentist keep accurate dental records.

What to Expect

The experience of having an intra-oral camera used is generally enjoyable and non-invasive. The camera is small enough that it can fit in your mouth the same way the head of a toothbrush might. It can be moved around in the mouth easily while taking video or pictures of the teeth and gums. We are able to show you images of your mouth in real time while we discuss any issues present.

What advantages does it provide?

The most obvious advantage intra-oral cameras provide is the immediate feedback and education for the patient. It can easily reveal oral conditions like cavities and gum disease. The patient benefits greatly from seeing what effects their oral hygiene habits have on their mouth. We are often able to make patients aware of issues while they are still reversible with the introduction of good habits.

Dr. Collins may use an intraoral camera during your routine checkup to more accurately diagnose your oral health. With an intraoral camera, we can identify issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, and chipped or cracked teeth. With early detection, we can provide early treatment, ultimately helping you avoid further damage and more extensive or expensive treatment.

As Dr. Collins takes images with an intraoral camera, the images are projected to a nearby screen, where you, the patient, can also view them. This means that you can see what Dr. Collins sees, giving you a better and clearer understanding of your oral health.
