Intraoral Camera


Intraoral cameras are small, handheld devices that capture high-resolution images of the inside of your mouth. These cameras have a slim, pen-like design and are equipped with a light source, allowing our dental professionals to illuminate and capture precise visuals of your teeth, gums and oral tissues. The images are instantly displayed on a chairside monitor, enabling us to explain your dental conditions and treatment options more effectively.


During your dental examination, our skilled dental team will gently maneuver the intraoral camera around your mouth to capture detailed images. The process is comfortable, non-invasive and painless. You will be able to see the images on the monitor in real-time, providing a deeper understanding of your oral health and fostering open communication between you and our dental professionals.


  • Enhanced Visual Examination: Intraoral cameras provide a close-up view of your oral structures, allowing us to detect early signs of dental problems such as decay, cracks, or gum disease. This enables us to intervene promptly and prevent further complications.
  • Patient Engagement and Education: By visualizing the captured images on the monitor, you can actively participate in your oral health journey. Our dental team can explain the findings and treatment options in a more comprehensible manner, empowering you to make informed decisions.
  • Improved Treatment Planning: Intraoral cameras aid in accurate treatment planning by providing detailed visuals of your dental conditions. We can design personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs and goals.
  • Documentation and Monitoring: Intraoral camera images serve as valuable documentation of your dental health. We can compare images over time to monitor changes in your oral health and track the effectiveness of treatments.
  • Enhanced Patient Comfort: Intraoral cameras eliminate the need for uncomfortable and traditional methods of oral examination, such as relying solely on mirrors. The process is non-invasive and minimizes any potential discomfort.
