3D Digital X-Rays

Compared to traditional x-rays, 3D digital x-rays offer higher quality x-ray imaging. We use 3D digital x-rays for a variety of treatments and procedures.

3D planning for intensive procedures like dental implants, orthodontic treatments, and root canals

Keeping track of the development of pediatric patient's facial structures in the early stages of growth to pinpoint any signs of developing oral concerns

Watching the progress of our patient's tooth structure during orthodontic treatments to ensure teeth are shifting into their ideal positions according to their personalized treatment plan

3D digital x-rays allow our team to have a better understanding of ongoing dental concerns and give our team the ability to effectively plan for the most suitable treatment path.

Digital Impressions

Traditionally, dental impressions were made by biting down on a tray full of molding material. Thanks to the development of dental innovations, Miller’s Family Dentistry is able to take high-quality digital impressions of your teeth with a digital impression scanner. This creates a more comfortable experience without the mess.

We use a digital impression scanner called iTero. This advanced scan technology makes your dental experience more comfortable while allowing our dental technicians to ensure your treatments are fully customized to your needs.

Benefits of digital impression technology include:

  • Digital impressions can be used for restorations such as crowns, braces, and clear aligners.
  • Digital impressions are faster and more accurate than traditional dental impressions.
  • Digital impressions eliminate the need for goopy molding material that can cause gagging or discomfort.
  • The scanner can be stopped at any time during the scanning process if a patient becomes uncomfortable during the scan.

3D impressions of your teeth and soft tissue structures are visible within minutes. With this digital impression software, our dental technician can show you accurate digital impressions that can be used for a variety of treatments such as bridges, dental crowns, dental implants, orthodontic treatments, and more.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped appliance that easily fits in your mouth and allows our technicians to take high-quality photos of your teeth and gums. These photos can be used to diagnose and treat an array of potential oral health concerns. This tool is extremely effective at aiding our dentists by spotting early signs of gum disease, tooth decay, bone loss, and other concerns before they become detrimental. 

Using these pictures, our dental team can help you identify issues with your teeth and suggest ways to improve your overall dental hygiene. These photos are also shareable. This allows us to share these photos with other dentists if you happen to move, as well as dental insurance companies if requested.
