Why use an intra-oral camera? Primarily for patient education, it is often helpful to show patients exactly what you are doing, and what is going on inside their mouths. This can aid you in highlighting area’s that need particular medical attention. This leads to patients being less likely to refuse or delay procedures because they can clearly see the affected area’s and impact it is having.
Intra-oral cameras can also be used for keeping clear visual records for patient files. As well as showing cosmetic changes as procedures progress.
