The intraoral camera is a tool that Hooper Dentistry offers to document and study the patient’s teeth & oral environment.
Hooper Dentistry also uses this tool to educate the patient, giving you a ‘tour’ of the mouth to examine the teeth & soft tissues.
An intraoral camera can project an image of your tooth onto a monitor, so you can see the problem in a magnified version & how the issue can be corrected.
It can also identify problems that may not be detected by the general means of examination, including cracks in your fillings or fractured teeth.
Similar to the size & design of a dental mirror, an intraoral camera allows you to make better decisions regarding your treatment as you can see the same things we see.
In addition, we can send these images to insurance companies to assist you in getting coverage for treatment.
