Get A Quick And Accurate Diagnosis With An Intraoral Camera
Intraoral cameras are a powerful tool in dentistry that allows us to get an internal view of your mouth and jaw where traditional X-rays can’t reach. At Tracey Tabor Williams DMD in Indianapolis, we use intraoral cameras to help diagnose a wide array of oral issues.
How does an intraoral camera work?
An intraoral camera is a very small camera placed at the end of a wand and can easily be manipulated anywhere in the mouth. It captures images of your teeth, gums, and tissues, which you can see on the monitors. The camera is also outfitted with LED lighting and a magnifier for improved visibility. It can be used to diagnose many issues that might be present.
What issues can intraoral cameras help diagnose?
Intraoral cameras can help our dentist diagnose cavities, fractured teeth, failing restorations, lesions such as cold sores and canker sores, early signs of oral cancer, inflamed tissues, plaque buildup, and more.
What are the benefits of intraoral cameras?
Intraoral cameras can detect issues before they become more serious. This early detection allows us to provide prompt treatment and gives our patients the best chance of avoiding further complications. In addition, intraoral cameras help us create more accurate diagnoses and provide a detailed view of any problems to plan more effective treatments.
Are intraoral cameras safe?
Yes, intraoral cameras are extremely safe and noninvasive. They emit no radiation, and the wand-like device inserted into your mouth is smooth and comfortable.
Who should consider an intraoral camera exam?
Anyone looking for a more detailed oral health examination should consider this procedure. It’s especially beneficial for those with existing dental issues and people with a high risk of developing them in the future.
