Intraoral Camera

Detect Oral Health Problems Earlier

Dentists care deeply about prevention, not only because it’s cheaper for people to pay for but also because it’s the most effective way to avoid complex and often uncomfortable restorative dental treatments for tooth decay and gum disease. With an intraoral camera, dentists can detect early signs of dental problems sooner, especially issues that may otherwise be invisible to the naked eye.

Improves Relationships with Patients

Intraoral cameras are designed to make explaining a person’s oral health condition easier. This is because the device is equipped with a tiny camera in its tip for capturing high resolution images of the mouth. If you’re someone who prefers to “see to believe” when it comes to your oral health, you’ll love intraoral cameras. They work to keep you informed and improve your relationship with your dentist!

Enhanced Accuracy for Treatments

With an intraoral camera, dentists can magnify parts of the mouth and examine hard-to-reach areas even more easily compared to using a handheld dental mirror or conventional microscope. This includes problems like pulp exposures and vertical fractures, two problems that can easily get missed during a routine exam. This information can then better inform treatments recommended by the dentist.

More Reliable and Accessible Dental Records

If you’ve had digital X-rays captured before, you’ve probably experienced the dentist going over your most current X-rays compared to your previous ones to gain a better understanding of your oral health and how it may be changing over time. The same logic applies to images captured with an intraoral camera. Documenting the state of teeth and gums, whether it’s part of a routine checkup or as a way to measure progress following the beginning of a treatment, is essential to protecting the long-term health of your smile.

Creates Easier Insurance Claim Process

If you use dental insurance, you may have experienced issues in the past where a provider simply refused to offer coverage for a specific treatment because a claims form failed to show medical necessity for care. Intraoral camera photos are incredibly detailed, which can help patients justify the need for a dentist’s recommended treatment. Since the entire process is digital, it’s also much easier to get these images sent to your insurer, reducing the time it takes to receive reimbursement.
