We incorporate our intra oral camera into all our new patient exams because it helps show the patient their own teeth. It is an educational experience seeing cracks, open margins and calculus deposits. It really motivates our patients to take better care of their teeth.
The intra-oral camera is very small and approximately the size of a pen. Because of its small size, the camera can reveal images of the teeth from angles previously unseen. All exams using the intra-oral camera are completely sanitary, as a different disposable camera cover is used on each patient every time. Images from the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed or disposed of following an exam.
