When examining your mouth, our dentist and team may use an intraoral camera. Intraoral cameras are small, pen-shaped devices that can be easily maneuvered inside your mouth to capture high-quality color photos of your teeth and gums. They are an ideal tool for viewing the areas of your mouth that are difficult or impossible to examine with the eyes alone. Some common dental problems that intraoral cameras are used to help diagnose include:
- Tooth decay
- Periodontal disease
- Cracked and chipped teeth
The images captured by an intraoral camera are projected instantaneously onto a nearby monitor. Not only does this make it easy for our dentist to examine your mouth and quickly diagnose any developing problems, it also makes it easy for you to see and understand what is happening in your mouth. We may also use an intraoral camera to show you the results of your treatment after it has been completed. Additionally, photos captured by the camera can be forwarded to specialists and insurance companies as needed so that you can continue to receive the treatments you need.
We invite you to call Anaheim Hills Family Dental at (714) 998-2553 to learn more about intraoral cameras in Anaheim Hills, California, and to set up your consultation with Dr. Ryan Hong. We look forward to helping you care for your smile.
