Sometimes, being shown is better than an explanation. With an intra oral camera, you will be able to see what the dentist is looking at on a nearby screen. This makes it easier to discuss issues and view the problem teeth or gum area for yourself.
How an intra oral camera works
The intra oral camera is merely a tiny camera mounted in a small tube and connected to the computer or screen. The dentist can move the camera freely around your mouth, providing a close up look of your teeth you could never manage otherwise.
Instead of simply telling you what treatment you need, by using the camera, your dentist can show you a close up image of the cracked teeth, cavities, broken fillings or other problems.
