Dental Surgical Microscope
Dr. Miner and his staff utilize the latest in dental surgical microscopy. This allows for enhanced magnification and lighting throughout procedures while improving ergonomics for both the patient and doctor.
Spectra Caries Detection Aid
The Spectra Detection System utilizes fluorescence to detect decay in fissures and smooth surfaces that may go unnoticed even in X-ray images. Early detection means pinpointing problems at an earlier stage, which leads to more conservative therapies and less aggressive removal of tooth material.
Utilizing advanced radiofrequency (RF) surgical instruments allows Dr. Miner and his staff a level of precision and versatility unmatched by traditional surgical tools. Radiosurgery offers the advantages of a safe, fast, and efficient incision while ensuring the doctor has complete visibility. These advanced instruments also establish hemostasis while minimizing the need for sutures.
CEREC Digital Impression System and One Day Crowns
The CEREC digital impression system allows Dr. Miner to produce a complete digital profile of your teeth. Utilizing advanced 3D scanning technology, Dr. Miner’s patients can avoid the discomfort of trays and “goop” associated with traditional gel impressions. This system is especially helpful for patients that experience intense gag reflex reactions to gel impressions. This software also gives Dr. Miner and his team the ability to fabricate crowns in office to be seated the same day.
Hain DNA Analysis
With a simple swab, Dr. Miner and his staff will identify what bacteria are at the root of your dental and periodontal issues. Once armed with the information, an oral care plan will be tailored specifically for you.
The definitive tool for diagnosis, Dr. Miner offers a high-resolution view from the inside of a patient’s mouth to provide the best clinical diagnosis while also thoroughly educating his patients on the next course of action.
ORTHOPHOS SL 3D Digital Xray
The best diagnostics combined with patient comfort and safety is at the center of Dr. Miner’s practice. With panoramic digital x-rays, your care begins with an accurate, 360 degree, 3-dimensional view of the your mouth’s internal anatomy. This quick and painless process allows Dr. Miner to get the exact image he needs without exposing patients to unnecessary radiation.
