An intra-oral camera is a tiny video camera that captures magnified images within the mouth and displays them on a computer monitor. Both dentist and patient can clearly see irregularities not visible by the naked eye.
Since its introduction in the early ‘90s the intra-oral camera has grown in popularity. Today, its use is widespread. Dentists that use this device have found it very helpful at diagnosing dental conditions such as tooth decay and cracked teeth and in educating the patient.
