Intraoral camera helps dentists view tooth damage that we may not be able to detect with traditional dental tools.

To schedule an appointment with our dentists and to learn more about intraoral cameras in St. Louis, Missouri, we invite you to call our office at 314-741-5133.
A Clear Vision of Your Dental Health
An intraoral camera is a tool we use to get a closer look at different parts of your smile. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped tool that we can use to take color, high-quality photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other structures in your mouth as needed. Because the intraoral camera is so small and easily maneuverable, we can use it to see angles in your mouth that we cannot easily view with the unaided eye. We may utilize the intraoral camera to better evaluate your oral health and to diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth. The intraoral camera is also useful in following up after a treatment has been completed.
Benefits of Intraoral Cameras
In addition to helping our team get a better view of your smile, the images taken with the intraoral camera are also helpful for allowing you, our patient, to gain a better understanding of your oral health and dental treatments. We can also send these photos to other dentists and specialists, and submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. If unexpected tooth pain or an accident have you suffering, give us a call and schedule an appointment. Reach out to our office by calling 314-741-5133 at your earliest convenience!
