    Imaging

    At Holger Dental Group, advanced technology is used to provide you with a positive and effective dental
    experience. Our 3D imaging system helps us to more accurately map your treatment by providing us
    with a 360 degree view of your face and head. The scan requires just a few minutes, but the information
    it provides is incredibly useful in many procedures, including:

    • Placement of dental implants
    • Periodontal disease diagnosis
    • Detecting bone loss
    • Identifying tooth decay

    1

    Scan

    Using our 3Shape Trios Scanner we digitally collect patient anatomy.

    Design

    The scan data then gets imported into CAD software, where Dr. Meiser virtually creates the design.

    3

    Print

    Dr. Meiser imports the designed CAD files into PreForm print preparation software for the print setup and easily sends the design to our 3D Printer.

    4

    Prepare

    Wash, dry, and post-cure the printed parts. These parts can then be used intraorally.

  • Digital Radiography

    Digital radiography allows us to safely and effectively detect potential oral health problems. Digital radiography is the latest in Dental X-Ray technology, and it also allows us to accurately detect a multitude of things:

    • Tooth decay
    • Oral abnormalities
    • Bone loss
    • Tumors and Cysts

    Advantages of Digital Radiography:

    • Reduced time in the chair
    • Reduced radiation
    • Quality Images
    • Ability to take multiple exposures without repositioning the sensor
    • Storage and maintenance of the images
    • Electronic transmission of the images

    Because digital X-rays are instantly viewable, we can detect, diagnose, and treat oral health problems more efficiently than ever before. In addition, digital X-Rays require significantly less radiation than traditional film X-rays, making them a safe diagnostic tool. Dr. Meiser typically recommends having new digital dental X-rays taken at every six-month Wellness Check to ensure that you are still in optimal oral health. If it has been over six months since your last visit to the dentist, call Holger Dental Group in Minnetonka today to schedule an appointment and begin your journey to optimal oral health now!

  • Oral Cancer Screening

    We are dedicated to helping you remain healthy and free from oral disease. We provide a VELscope oral cancer screening at every six-month appointment in order to catch oral cancer as early as possible. When detected in its earliest stages, oral cancer is more easily treated. According to the American Cancer Society, over 30,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year, with over 7,000 of those cases resulting in death. With the VELscope oral cancer screening, we can help combat those numbers and save lives.


    The goal of oral cancer screening is to detect mouth cancer or precancerous lesions that may lead to mouth cancer at an early stage — when cancer or lesions are easiest to remove and most likely to be cured.

    The VELscope exam has many benefits and is:

    • Completely safe
    • It is pain free
    • Zero radiation
    • It is completely noninvasive for the patient as it is performed without any dyes or rinses
    • Quick, requiring just a minute or two of your time

    VELscope oral cancer detection uses innovative fluorescent technology to help Dr. Meiser and our clinical team detect oral abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye. To ensure you remain in good health, we recommend visiting the dentist at least once a year for a dedicated oral cancer examination in addition to your six-month Wellness Checks. For more information on the VELscope oral cancer detection system or any of our technologies, we invite you to call or visit our office in Minnetonka today.

    • Accuracy – minimizes errors that can be easily made with impressions
    • Versatility – can be used for many treatments including: Crowns, bridges, implants, and veneers
    • Avoids the use of messy impression material – thank God!
