Intraoral cameras (IOCs) is a specialized hand-held wand camera used by dentists to show a patient the interior of their mouth, as an alternative to using a mirror. IOCs allow the patients to see a clear picture of the interior of their mouth, assisting the dentists to explain the oral health problems with the patients conveniently. Also, images can be saved to a patient’s file for future reference.
Digital X-ray is one of the state-of-the-art technologies utilized in the field of dentistry. Now radiographs are taken using digital X-ray sensors. Digital radiography provides targeted x-ray exposure for capturing the image of tooth or structure associated with it, hence reduces exposure rate to an appreciable extent. Technological advancements in x-ray technology leads to various benefits such as safety from excessive radiation, time saving and better outcomes.
