What does an intraoral camera look like?
The camera looks like a thick pen. There are L.E.D. lights on one end of the camera near the lens.
What are the camera images used for?
The images captured are used for insurance claims, patient education, diagnosis and consultation with a specialist. They also help when comparing findings from visit to visit to further aid in diagnosing a condition.
