In today's world, Video and photography has become the most useful tool for patient education in the field of medicine. Likewise, dental practitioners have the intraoral camera. Intraoral cameras are essentially tiny digital cameras that enable dentists to capture images of difficult-to-reach areas in the mouth. They can easily go inside the mouth and capture digital images inside it. They are powerful tools to effectively find out teeth problems hidden even in the most troublesome areas of the mouth.
