What is an intraoral camera?

With the use of an intraoral camera, our experienced dentists can show you the inside of your mouth that you cannot easily see without technical assistance. This computer technology shows precision 3D imaging of your teeth so that your dentist can review your dental health with you as you follow along. The tiny camera that we use for this process will allow you to see parts of your mouth that you would not be able to see with ordinary equipment or resources.


What are the benefits of intraoral camera imaging?

Intraoral cameras can depict teeth at 40 times the actual size of the tooth. Dr. Meltzer and Dr. Hsieh use the camera to examine teeth with a precision and scale that would be impossible with the unaided eye. This advanced technology can be used to detect problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease much earlier than would otherwise be possible. Another great benefit of the computer intraoral video imaging is that you can follow along with the dentists as they look inside your mouth. This can be a very educational experience. While we are using the intraoral camera, we will teach you how we do what we do and walk you through the process.
