MillerLung Welcomes New Technology!

Technology is changing and improving dentistry and healthcare every day.    The MillerLung Dental Group researches new technological advances and incorporates the technologies that will improve the quality of dentistry that we provide for our patients. 

Our office transitioned to digital x-rays over five years ago, providing improved diagnostic information at a fraction of the radiation exposure of traditional x-rays.  In addition to digital x-rays, we have recently acquired a digital scanner.  This scanner will make certain procedures more comfortable for patients, especially those that struggled with the gooey impression material necessary to make a dental crown. 

We now have the 3Shape Trios3 scanner.   It takes many high quality images of your teeth from which the lab is able to create a 3-dimensional model that will be used to fabricate your crown.  It is more accurate than traditional impressions, and more comfortable!  It cannot be used for every procedure that requires impression material, but it will replace most of our crown & bridge impressions.  If you have any questions about our new scanner, feel free to ask one of the staff members at MillerLung Dental Group at your next visit.  We would love to show you how it works!
