An intraoral camera is a camera designed for use inside the mouth. It is a lightweight hand piece that can be directed to any nook or cranny. The camera is connected to a computer screen for viewing live images and can be connected to the hard drive of a PC for saving any images captured. The images can also be stored on a USB device. Intraoral cameras use LED lights for illuminating the inside of the mouth.
With the help of an intraoral camera, dentists can record more detailed information and make an accurate diagnosis. The patient can also view the images recorded on the video to get an understanding of the best possible treatment plan for his dental problem.
