The advancements to orthodontic technology in recent years have made it so that your smile can be treated efficiently and comfortably. Investments into advanced technology can produce better results with fewer visits and shorter treatment. Your experience with orthodontics can be one with enhanced comfort, decreased treatment time, and fewer trips to the orthodontist. Technology also allows for greater precision. The technological advancements also make your treatment more discreet for your appearance.
Digital imaging technology can produce very precise, vivid, detailed images of your teeth. Less modern techniques to get a rendering of your smile involved taking a physical impression of teeth with a putty mold. The experience was often a bit messy and could be uncomfortable for you, especially for the impressions needed from the back of the mouth. Physical molds were also much less precise than digitally scanned images. Digital renderings could be used to provide useful information to you and your orthodontist, to design treatment plans, or design molds or trays for your mouth. Digital imaging devices, like the iTero scanner, involves only using a handheld scanner to record your mouth. The process is much less time-consuming and messy than the traditional putty method.
The goal of orthodontic treatment is to move teeth into more symmetrically aligned positions. To do this, there must be a reformation of the jawbone structure and periodontal tissues supporting them. Bone reformation and shifting can typically take up to two years to complete. Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics allows for your treatment to be finished in almost half the time. The technology of Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics stimulates the bone growth and formation around your teeth, which allows for a quicker orthodontic treatment.
