The intra-oral camera is a miniature video camera that we can point inside your child’s mouth so you can see close-up images of their teeth and gums. If we need to recommend a certain treatment, you’ll be able to see exactly what is causing the concern. It’s also a great way to point out which teeth look fine. This tool gives you extra insight when making dental decisions for your child.
Dr. Callahan uses digital X-rays to reduce any radiation exposure to your child. He recommends bitewing X-rays once a year with panoramic films taken every three years. The digital sensor takes the images of your child’s mouth and downloads them straight to a computer where the X-rays can be viewed right away. This method results in 75% less radiation exposure compared to conventional X-rays and eliminates the chemical waste that can pollute the environment.
