All too often, patients feel as if they are just along for the ride when it comes to their dental care, not fully understanding the treatments involved or the challenges their oral health is facing. Here in St. Peter, Dr. Miller and the rest of our team love utilizing intraoral cameras because they help us fully involve and educate people of all ages as we treat their smiles.
The camera itself is a small, camera-tipped wand that is comfortably inserted into the patient’s mouth. The high-quality images it captures are then transferred to a convenient monitor allowing us to show you your oral health in perfect detail. This is a big help when explaining the effects of certain treatment options pointing out areas of damage and providing brushing and flossing instructions.
CT Conebeam Scanner
Today, most dental offices are utilizing digital X-ray technology when diagnosing patients’ smiles. While effective, these 2D images aren’t always the most informative. With a revolutionary CT Conebeam Scanner right here in-office, our team is proud to go a step beyond when it comes to our patients’ wellbeing and quality of care. This technology creates a fully detailed, 3D digital image of the patient’s mouth, jaw, and related structures allowing Dr. Miller to identify the smallest areas of damage and pinpoint important areas like nerves, sinuses, and more. This is crucial when planning dental implant placement and other area-sensitive procedures where accuracy is very important.
Keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy is important to our excellent hygiene department here at Valley View Dental, which is why our team members utilize the state-of-the-art Picasso Soft Tissue Laser. The energy from this laser safely controls infection helping to fight back the scourge of gum disease. Its minimally invasive sterilizing quality is preferable to the traditional use of a scalpel!
Cold and canker sores can cause frustrating pain and discomfort. Did you know that a trained dentist like Dr. Miller is able to treat these areas and create the relief you need? With our advanced Hoya ConBio laser, our team can stop the progression of these lesions in their tracks and facilitate faster healing while eliminating pain instantly. Repeated instances of laser treatment can even help reduce the risk of further outbreaks. Bacterial reduction, aesthetic crown lengthening, and other services can be performed with the help of this laser as well.
