The intraoral camera is a digital device that allows Dr. Goetz to take pictures of the internal oral cavity in real time. Thanks to its size and improvements in resolution, this camera provides impressions and close-ups of the mouth in a way which would not be possible to get with the use of a conventional camera.
The intraoral camera has become a very useful tool when it comes to showing patients the inside of their mouth. These cameras allow the dentist to explain the diagnosis and treatment in detail. As a patient, you can be aware of the state of your oral health before starting a procedure. You will feel more confident than if you had to simply rely on what the dentist explains to you.

Intraoral Camera: Procedure & Diagnosis
INTRAORAL CAMERA PROCEDURE
1. Intraoral cameras consist of a hand piece with a light attached and with one or more lenses, which is inserted into your mouth to perform the diagnosis.
2. The intraoral camera allows the lens to be introduced into the mouth to collect images of the inside of the mouth.
3. These images are transferred to the monitor where you can see, in a magnified way, the dental problems that you may have.
4. By using an intraoral camera, it will be much easier to show you what is going on inside your mouth and you will be able to understand it more easily.
How Do Dental Intraoral Cameras Work?
Dental intraoral cameras are digital and work with a very easy to use computer program. They consist of two parts: a hand-held element with illumination lenses that is introduced into the patient's mouth and a monitor where the image of the oral cavity is displayed in real time. These two parts are connected by cable or wirelessly, depending on the model.
How Do I Know If I Need to Use the Intraoral Camera?
Your doctor will determine whether it is necessary or not to use the intraoral camera. As it is very easy and simple to use, any time the specialist needs to obtain close-ups of your mouth, the intraoral camera will be used.
How Much is the Intraoral Camera?
You can ask your dental insurance whether your plan has dental coverage or not. Most of them have. Ocean Breeze Prosthodontics is a fee-for service office. This means you will have to pay the complete amount and then your dental insurance will reimburse you. As we work with PPO plans, this will happen shortly after the treatment has been completed.
