Our pediatric dentists and team use intraoral cameras to examine your child’s mouth and smile. This advanced imaging technology allows us to view all areas of your child’s mouth with ease while also helping your child remain comfortable.
An intraoral camera is a tool our pediatric dentists and team use to get a closer look at different parts of your child’s smile. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped device that we can use to take high-quality color photos of your child’s teeth and gums, as well as other areas of their mouth as needed. Because the intraoral camera is so small and easily maneuverable, we can use it to see angles in your child’s mouth that we cannot easily view with the unaided eye. We may utilize the intraoral camera to better evaluate your child’s oral health and diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth. The intraoral camera is also useful in following up after a treatment has been completed.
In addition to helping our team get a better view of your child’s smile, the images taken with the intraoral camera allow you to gain a better understanding of your child’s oral health and dental treatments. We can also send these photos to other dentists and specialists and can submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we invite you to call or visit our pediatric dentists and team soon.
