Digital radiographs (x-rays) allow for precise evaluation of your teeth, gums, and dental structures, granting us the ability to identify concerns and plan your procedure with greater refinement than ever before. This method also minimizes your radiation exposure compared with traditional x-rays, proving to be a safer alternative to the latter.
One of our newest and most exciting pieces of technology is the i-CAT CBCT radiographic system. This 3D digital platform allows us to view the upper jaw, lower jaw, and oral structures from virtually any angle, giving our team unprecedented access and making highly-advanced, precision orthodontic treatment easier than ever—which means more rapid diagnoses, fewer mid-treatment adjustments, faster procedure times, and optimized outcomes. The i-CAT also improves patient comfort and treatment experience, with its comfortable seated design and reduced exposure to radiation. Combined with digital impressions, digital X-rays, 3D printing, and other advanced techniques and technology, the i-CAT makes us a modern, fully digital practice, and the only orthodontic practice in the area that can make this claim.
Traditional dental molds can be uncomfortable, messy, and time-consuming. That’s why we use the iTero™ intraoral scanner to collect digital impressions. With this technology, we can scan your entire mouth using a handheld device in as little as two minutes. Furthermore, the result is often far more precise than traditional impressions, allowing us to provide unparalleled treatment planning and outcomes. When used with our JUELL™ 3D printer, we can provide faster and more accurate service for Invisalign® patients and individuals seeking other orthodontic care. Higher accuracy can also mean shorter treatment times for many people. It’s just one more way to we offer a superior patient-focused approach.
The JUELL™ 3D Printer is yet another way we deliver on our philosophy of utilizing the most advanced technology available to help our patients enjoy top-quality care as quickly, efficiently, and accurately as possible. This state-of-the-art system allows our orthodontists to create surgical guides, construct customized corrective retainers, and plan teeth-straightening programs in minutes from the comfort of our office. For treatments such as in-office aligners, this saves you—the patient—both time and money. Furthermore, we can do it all without sacrificing precision or results. If you would like to know more about this innovative device, please don’t hesitate to ask during your appointment.
Self-ligating braces offer patients a more comfortable and convenient way to straighten teeth in comparison to traditional orthodontic options. Designed to exclusively adjust specific teeth that are out of alignment, the archwire slides freely between brackets without universally applying pressure to all teeth, often resulting in less discomfort as the smile is aligned. Furthermore, there is no need for rubber bands or frequent wire adjustments, proper oral hygiene is typically easier to maintain, and clear, smaller brackets are available for enhanced treatment discretion. Ultimately, self-ligating braces can be an exceptionally efficient and effective teeth straightening solution for those seeking an alternative to conventional metal braces.
