LASER GUM TREATMENT
LANAP laser therapy is ONLY performed with the Periolase MVP-7 laser specifically designed for LANAP.
LANAP = Laser Assisted Regeneration. A successful protocol for treating gum disease by targeting inflammation without hurting healthy tissue. There are a lot of lasers out there, different wavelengths, different power, different parameters. But the only LANAP laser is the Periolase.
Intraoral cameras make it possible to take very clear images inside your mouth and magnify them several times for viewing on a computer monitor. These cameras allow you to see exactly what our Dr Miller and his dental team see. Cavities, cracks in the teeth, receding gums, and many other conditions can typically be clearly seen on the intraoral camera’s high-resolution images. These pictures can help you to better comprehend your dental health and understand your needs to make a more educated decision regarding your treatment. These images also assist our front staff when submitting to your insurance company, which can ultimately speed up the claims process.
DEXIS CARIVU CARIES DETECTION
With CariVu™ by DEXIS, Dr. Miller can identify tooth decay (caries) early on, allowing him to plan the best course of treatment before it can get worse. The CariVu system involves a handheld device that transilluminates each tooth, making the tooth appear transparent. This advanced view makes it possible to find small lesions where they may otherwise not be detected. As the device is guided along the teeth, it captures digital images without the use of radiation. These photographs complement other imaging tools, like X-ray technology, creating a more comprehensive view of your tooth structure. In addition to being a valuable method of detecting decay, the CariVu device provides enhanced accuracy with removing the decay as well.
DIGITAL X-RAYS/3D IMAGING
With digital X-ray and 3D imaging, Dr. Miller can provide safer, more accurate dental treatment while helping you to obtain a clearer picture of what’s going on with your teeth and gums. Digital X-ray technology reduces your radiation exposure by up to 90% when compared with traditional X-rays – that’s less than the amount of radiation you can get from simple sun exposure. 3-D images.
All these advantages work to give our dental team a more precise view of any problem areas and come up with a customized treatment plan for your needs.
