An intraoral camera allows our Red Bank dentists to view clear, precise images of your teeth and gums. These images allow our team to make a more accurate diagnosis and develop a better treatment plan for each patient.
Many patients struggle to understand why they need complicated dental procedures when they aren’t experiencing any pain or see no visual evidence that a specific procedure is needed. Intraoral cameras allow a patient to see the state of their mouths in real-time rather than being shown difficult-to-understand x-rays. Now, patients can see and understand Dr. Ruda’s or Dr. DeAngelis’ diagnosis with their own eyes.
Intraoral cameras are roughly the same size as a pen and are fitted with a camera and light. The camera then transmits the images to a computer screen or television monitor. You’ll be able to see right away a fractured tooth, abscess, or cavity.
