At Caring Dental, we want to ensure that we use the best equipment in the industry to provide the care you deserve. One tool that we may use is an intraoral camera that allows us to examine the inside of your mouth, ensuring that we do not overlook anything. Learn more about our intraoral camera below, and reach out to our Baltimore, MD office to make an appointment.
The Goal of an Intraoral Camera
The entire purpose of an intraoral camera is to ensure that we do not miss anything. Even though a dentist from our team will examine your mouth, there are still issues that we may not be able to spot without the camera.
You are probably used to a dentist using a mirror to look at your teeth; a camera is a more accurate device. Furthermore, we can attach a light to the camera, making sure we clearly see everything. We can even use an intraoral camera to take videos, which we can then share with you. That way, you understand exactly what we are discussing when explaining issues we may have spotted.
How We Use It
There are several ways to use an intraoral camera to help you take care of your health. Some of the most common examples include:
- We can use an intraoral camera to give you a live-action view of what is happening in your mouth. For example, if a hygienist spots something, we can use the camera to share it with you.
- We can also use an intraoral camera for health screening. If there is a lesion that we would otherwise have a difficult time seeing, we may be able to spot it using a camera.
- We can also use this camera to track your progress. For example, if we are in the process of straightening your teeth, we may be able to use an intraoral camera to stage different parts of the treatment plan.
- We can even use an intraoral camera to help explain what you need to do to take care of your teeth. That way, you know how to brush and floss properly at home.
These are just a few of the many examples of the ways we may put the camera to use. If you want to get the most out of this diagnostic option, count on our team to help you.
