Since digital x-rays don’t always tell the whole story, an intraoral camera is used to record photographs of your teeth.
Photographs of your teeth are important when we need to see if there are changes in your oral condition over time that may not be visible on an x-ray such as shifting teeth, worn edges, chipped teeth or broken fillings.

If you have dental insurance, intraoral photographs can be used to submit claims to insurance companies and may help in getting treatment approved, sometimes without requiring additional x-rays. It’s also a great way for our patients to see and understand what is going on with their teeth so you can make informed decisions about your oral health.
