What is an intraoral camera?

An intraoral camera is a technological tool we use at Northern Virginia Dental Associates to ensure that you receive the best possible dental care. Our talented dentists use intraoral cameras to view multiple angles inside the mouth that would be difficult to see with traditional examination methods. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped tool that takes color images of the inside of the mouth. With these images, Dr. Winkler, Dr. Charaipotra, Dr. Coulter, and Dr. Kanli can detect dental problems and plan dental treatments. The process of taking images with an intraoral camera is fast and comfortable.

How do intraoral cameras improve my dental experience?

The intraoral camera transmits live, color images to a screen that is in the treatment room, allowing our dentists and dental team to immediately evaluate your oral health. You, the patient, will also be able to view these images. Intraoral cameras help our patients better understand their oral health and dental treatments. The images provided by an intraoral camera in Springfield, Virginia can also be submitted to dental insurance companies.
