Intraoral Technology

What are intraoral cameras?

Getting a proper look at your smile is vital to making a proper diagnosis and understanding the state of your teeth and gums. Our dentists use intraoral cameras to aid in this effort. Intraoral cameras are thin, wand-shaped cameras that can take high-quality images of the inside of your mouth. Easy to use, an intraoral camera at Alaska Dental Arts allows us great dexterity and range of motion when capturing all necessary information about your smile.

What are the benefits of intraoral cameras?

The main benefits of intraoral cameras come from their use as a diagnostic and educational tool. We are able to use the images taken with intraoral cameras to help you see what we see. This can give you more confidence in understanding why we are suggesting certain treatments and how they can benefit your smile. We can also easily share the images taken with other specialists and even your insurance company if necessary. Intraoral cameras, overall, are a comfortable, easy way to gather information necessary to plan treatments to benefit your oral health. For more information about how intraoral cameras are used, please contact your nearest office today. We would be glad to answer all of your questions.
