Intraoral camera has been proven to be an invaluable tool in the field of clinical dentistry. With the advent of handy intraoral cameras, exhaustive labour techniques were reduced with better elucidation and diagnosis of the clinical oral condition. This has improved the clarity of treatment plan options with better patient compliance which has resulted in quality treatment delivery. The intra-oral camera possesses many advantages that include easy sterilisation, reusability and portability. It also serves as a better tool for patient education, awareness, and knowledge that enhances the scope for understanding the concepts of treatment and inculcating a positive attitude towards oral health. This review also discusses the application of intraoral cameras in various specialities of dentistry and adds a short description of various clinical trials corroborating the existing literature that emphasises the need of the hour in the utilisation of this technology in the field.
