IntraOral Cameras are used to build patients’ trust through visual communication. While other digital SLR cameras are useful, IOCs are best used chairside to show the patient a clear picture of the inside of their mouth, allowing the dentist to consult them on various treatment options, and save the images directly to a patient’s file.
"A patient can see his own intraoral conditions under magnification with better quality than the dentist could show him with a foggy mouth mirror. I can show an endodontic hole down almost to the apex. It's unbelievable what you can see and what it means to the patient as he looks down that hole with you, and sees the challenges you're facing."
One of the primary uses for an intraoral camera
is in patient education. Dentists often find it helpful to be able to show patients exactly what is going on inside their mouths, and to highlight areas where medical attention may be needed. Patients are also less likely to defer or refuse procedures when they can clearly see the area at issue, as some people are suspicious of recommendations for dental procedures, due to concerns about cost, potential pain, or the fears about members of the dental profession.
In addition to being used in patient education, such cameras can also be used to take clear visual records for patient files, and to generate material which can be used in consultations and discussions with other dental providers. For example, a general dentist might use an intraoral camera to take images of a tooth or area of the jaw which requires oral surgery so that a maxillofacial surgeon can examine the information before he or she meets the patient to get an idea of the kind of surgery which might be required.
Images taken by an intraoral camera can also be reviewed later, which can be useful for a dentist who feels a nagging suspicion that something is not quite right in the mouth of a patient. The intraoral camera can also be used to document procedures for legal and educational reasons, and to create projections of a patient's mouth which can be used in medical schools for the purpose of educating future dentists about various issues which pertain to oral health.
Digital intraoral camera is very important tool in modern dental practice. It enables dentist to see the important details in up to 100-fold magnification, thus making diagnosis more accurate and treatment easier and more precise. Camera is excellent communication dental equipment
between the dentist and the patient: a picture is worth a thousand words. Demonstration of intraoral status to the patient is lead-on to the planning of treatment. Camera also enables the efficient demonstration of treatment success by means of before- and after- comparisions. It also helps with optimizing prophylactic measures by pointing out defects and demonstrating the successes that have bean achieved.
Last but not least, digital intraoral camera together with imaging database software is important documentation tool.
