While X-rays provide valuable information that we can’t get from any other source, they can’t show you everything that’s going on in your mouth. Thats why we use intraoral cameras because they are a highly advanced piece of diagnostic equipment that allows you to se what we see inside your mouth.
The dental intraoral camera handpiece is approximately the size and shape of a dental mirror. It has a built-in light source, and serves as a tiny video camera that allows us to zoom in on one tooth with 25 times magnification, or give you a “video tour” of your entire mouth. The images are displayed on a computer monitor, so you’ll be able to see problems such worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings and excessive wear.
