What is an intraoral camera?
When examining your teeth and mouth, our dentist and team may use an intraoral camera. Intraoral cameras are small, pen-shaped devices used to take high-quality color photos of your teeth and gums. They are easily maneuverable and can be used to view all areas of your mouth, including the areas that are otherwise impossible for our dentist to reach. This imaging technology is also comfortable and non-invasive, and the camera can be removed quickly from your mouth as needed.
What are intraoral cameras used for?
Intraoral cameras are most commonly used to:
- Evaluate your oral health.
- Examine difficult-to-reach areas of the mouth.
- Diagnose dental problems, including tooth decay and gum disease.
- Diagnose tooth damage such as cracked or chipped teeth.
- Follow up on treatments after completion.

Intraoral cameras are also one of the most useful educational tools our dentist and team use. The images captured by the camera can be displayed almost instantly on a nearby monitor, allowing you to see for yourself what is happening in your mouth and better understand your oral health and treatment options. Additionally, the photos can be sent to other dentists, specialists and insurance companies as needed.
