Intraoral Cameras

What Is an Intraoral Camera?

An intraoral camera is a small device that resembles a toothbrush that is essentially a high-tech version of the small handheld mirror you’re used to seeing when you sit down in the dentist’s chair. With this device, we are able to better examine your mouth. Intraoral cameras can capture real-time footage on a monitor as we maneuver the device inside of your mouth. They can also be used to capture still images that we can use to pinpoint certain issues or send off to a specialist as needed.

Building Trust

When you sit down in the dentist’s chair, you have no idea of what is happening inside your mouth. As your teeth and gums are poked and prodded, you have no clue as to what we are doing or seeing.

With the use of an intraoral camera, we can give you the opportunity to see exactly what we are doing and see everything that we are seeing. By giving you this opportunity, we hope to build up your trust in us that we only want to do what is best for your oral health.

Benefits of an Intraoral Camera

Aside from being able to build a better relationship with you, the intraoral camera offers a whole host of benefits:

  • You have the ability to see what is happening as it is happening, rather than trying to imagine what we are describing to you.
  • Because you can see what is going on, you can understand just how important it is to receive treatment.
  • We can take an image and enlarge it, allowing us to see even the smallest issues. With this, we can start preventative measures before your small issue becomes a big problem. We can also use them to get a second opinion from a specialist if needed.
  • These images can be stored so we can monitor your progress during each subsequent visit.
  • You become more involved in your own oral health treatment.

Monitor Your Own Progress

In some instances, we can provide you with images to take home as well. With these images, you can monitor your own progress since you have something to compare your current oral status to. You know exactly what you’re looking for. And, if you notice things getting worse rather than better, you will notice it faster, allowing you to call us right away and take the proper measures for treatment.


The Dentist, Hygienist, Dental Nurses & Especially the Receptionist staff are very Polite, Friendly & most importantly they try to fit you in quickly in the event of an emergency. Recently I couldn’t get the time of work for an emergency appointment for my 81 year old Mum so I called an Uber for her & told the receptionist this. The young Black Lady called me when she ordered & place my Mother in a cab – so she went above & beyond her duties with a lot of Customer Care & Respect for my Mother- Thank You so much

I lost my two front teeth whilst at school and had complications for years. Unfortunately I ended up needing an implant – which I had been avoiding! I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Patel was fantastic and guided me through each stage. He was always contactable to answer any queries or concerns. Very happy with the end result and would reccomend.

Registered and seen on the NHS within 2 weeks – amazing. Really friendly staff, would definitely recommend

I have recently finished an invisalign program with Pooja at dulwich dental office and couldn’t be happier. The treatment was easy and pain free and the results are great. Pooja’s experience and friendliness made me feel at ease throughout. I would 100% recommend for anyone considering similar treatment.

A great surgery; Dr Cavan in particular spent time with me to make sure my new night guards fitted well and were up to the job

Dentist Pooja Pillay is excellent and was very patient with me as I I took a long time (years!) deciding whether or not to take the plunge and have Invisalign to straighten my teeth. It didn’t take too long and was easier than I thought it would be. Pooja kept a close eye on how it was all progressing and we even went a bit longer with it just to really perfect the result. I’m delighted with the outcome. Everything was included in the price, even the extra aligners and appointments when we decided to go on a bit longer. All staff at the practice have been excellent. Highly recommend.

I had my Invisaligns done by Dr Pillay and she really took the time to make sure my teeth are lovely and straight. She has always been available with any queries or follow up treatment I needed – and made me feel well looked after from the beginning and end of the treatment. I really recommend seeing her if you want to get Invisaligns done.

Dr. Cavan is super attentive and thoughtful and great at putting is patients at ease. I hate going to the dentist but havent dreaded it once. Everyone is super friendly and clinic is nice. I could not recommend more.

I am undergoing a course of Invisalign treatment with Dulwich Dental Office and I am so pleased with the results, even at this early stage. It is great that I can take the braces out to eat and clean my teeth. I am looking forward to the end result.
