An intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped tool with a digital camera attached. We use the intraoral camera to detect and diagnose dental problems, as well as to plan dental treatments and to evaluate your oral health. Using the intraoral camera, our friendly dentists and dental team can take live, color photos of your mouth. These high-quality images are then transmitted to a viewing monitor right in our treatment room, so both you and your dentists can get a better look at the inside of your mouth.
What are the benefits of an Intraoral Camera?
Intraoral cameras are especially useful for viewing multiple angles in the mouth that may not be easily viewed by the unassisted eye. With the intraoral cameras in Peoria, Arizona, Dr. Mettler and Dr. Griego can more easily identify and analyze dental problems such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, or tooth damage. We can also use the intraoral cam to plan certain dental treatments, such as fillings, dental crowns, and more. Intraoral cameras also help you, the patient, better understand your oral health.
We welcome you to call or visit us at Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry today to learn more about how intraoral cameras can enhance your dental experience.
