Intraoral Camera

Intraoral Camera

Our dentists and team utilize intraoral cameras in Warwick, New York. Dr. Syed Masihuddin or Dr. Pankaj Puri can use these cameras to examine every part of your smile, including those areas that can be otherwise difficult to reach. For a comprehensive dental exam, call Merchant Square Dental at 845-986-1732 today to plan your visit with us.

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 device that we can use to take high-quality color photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other areas of 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 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.

In addition to helping our team get a better view of your smile, the images taken with the intraoral camera allow 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 can submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we invite you to call or visit our dentists and team soon.
