While x-rays provide valuable information that we can’t get from any other source, they can’t show you everything that is going on in the mouth. That’s why we have an intra oral camera that is a highly advanced piece of diagnostic equipment that allows you to see what we see inside your mouth.
View problem areas LIVE during your visit
The intra-oral camera hand piece 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 stored on a computer monitor, so you are able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings and excessive wear. We can also print an image for you to take home.
