A slender hand-held camera designed to go into your mouth and show on the computer’s monitor high quality close-up colour images of your teeth, gums, fillings etc.
The camera can help to diagnose some dental problems but it’s mainly used to show patients any problems they my have such as decay and gum disease. It can also be used to show and record before, during and after treatment photos.
However more and more we are using it to give our patients more targeted preventive advice. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words!
