Instructions for ClearDent Integration
MouthWatch cameras easily integrate with ClearDent imaging software. Use the MouthWatch camera to capture images of the patient and store them directly into the patient record.
Step 1 – Download the Button Capture Software
- Go to: https://www.mouthwatch.com/intraoral-cameras/getting-started/ and download our Button Capture Software.

Install the program, following all steps in the guide
Important: If setting up a MouthWatch Plus+ make sure to install the required driver by checking the box at this step:
- Once you install the software, right click on the MouthWatch Capture icon in the lower right corner of your screen
A menu will display. Select Custom Keystrokes. Highlight the first blank sequence and press your spacebar to fill with the word Space, like shown below, then hit save.
