Intraoral Camera Overview
An intraoral camera is a small instrument that is used during comprehensive dental evaluations. By employing these little pen-like tools, general dentist Dr. Nick Dovey can have a much better, high-resolution view of your gums and teeth. An intraoral camera captures all angles of your mouth as it creates a live video that will be displayed on a connected screen. This video can allow for a more precise diagnosis to be made because your entire mouth will be visible. The camera system can also be used during a procedure to give Dr. Dovey a better visual of your mouth as a whole. During your initial consultation at Finest City Dental in San Diego, CA, Dr. Dovey will demonstrate all of the advantages that intraoral cameras offer to modern dental practices.

What To Expect with Intraoral Camera
Having size and shape very similar to that of a pencil, an intraoral camera is a versatile tool that transmits live video from inside your mouth to a screen. Dr. Dovey will slide the camera over your gums and teeth while watching the pictures on the screen. He will also have the ability to capture images to be used for a more thorough evaluation. By allowing you and Dr. Dovey to see the pictures on a monitor, a more educated decision and treatment program can be made. The use of this tool can ultimately lead you to have a better understanding of your oral health as a whole.
