What is an intraoral camera?
An intraoral camera is a technological tool that we use at T.F. Chen DDS to get a better look at your smile. The intraoral camera is small and shaped like a pen; our experienced dentists insert the intraoral camera into your mouth to take live, high-quality photos of your teeth, gums, and other parts of your mouth. This allows Dr. Chen and Dr. Chen to get a closer view of areas and angles in the mouth that would be difficult to view with the unassisted eye. The images provided by our intraoral camera in Glendale, California, are instantly viewable on a screen that is right in the treatment room, allowing us to provide efficient care and treatment. This system also allows you, the patient, to view the same images our dentists see. Intraoral cameras can help you better understand your oral health and the need for dental treatment.
What are the benefits of an intraoral camera?
In addition to those described above, there are several other advantages to using an intraoral camera. Dr. Chen and Dr. Chen can use intraoral cameras to detect and examine conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and more.
