At family Holistic Dentistry we have an Intraoral camera in each room and we use it in every single procedure for our patients to be able to see what we see inside their mouths. Intraoral cameras are a great alternative to mirrors with the advantage that we can take photos and save them in each chart for future references.
At the exam, we can show to our patients what we see in our monitors. This is very useful as an educational, diagnostic and record tool. This allow the patient to see a clear picture of the inside of their mouth, aiding the dentist in consulting with them on various treatment options.
