3D Precision X-Ray Technology
Dr. Millsaps is one of the few offices in Hickory, NC with an on-site 3-D Cone Beam CT Scanner. This revolutionary technology provides three-dimensional views that allow Dr. Millsaps to thoroughly assess and plan each patient prior to any surgical procedure.
The information that the scan offers is invaluable to Dr. Millsaps during the assessment and planning phases of dental implants and many other surgeries. He is able to accurately visualize and prepare for bone quality, the location of sinuses, nerves and other vital anatomical landmarks. Dr. Millsaps utilizes this scan prior to surgery to improve his patient’s experience and deliver a positive treatment outcome.
Itero 3D Scanner
With this digital scanner, Dr. Millsaps can create a 3D image of your teeth in just minutes. With these three-dimensional images, we can more easily and accurately show how your Invisalign® treatment will look. The scanner also offers more accurate "impressions" for crowns and bridges.
Digital x-rays are fast, comfortable, and efficient in oral health assessment. More importantly, they require no chemical processing and they emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays!
Digital x-rays can shorten your dental appointment! With traditional x-rays, the patient will have to wait while the dental professional chemically develops the film. With digital x-rays, the sensor is able to instantly develop the x-ray and it projects onto the computer screen right before your eyes. Once on the screen, Dr. Millsaps & Dr. Modlin are able to enlarge or magnify the x-ray for a better visual of your tooth and bone structure.
