Our goal is to offer our Fort Worth, TX, patients healthier smiles by correcting misalignment and poor bite balance. In order to treat misalignment, as well as TMJ disorder and other issues related to your smile’s balance and alignment, we employ orthodontics. As part of our approach, we create these orthodontics and plan treatment with advanced digital technology.
Creating Appliances with iTero®
With iTero®, we replace the process of biting down on a mold filled with a sticky and bad-tasting material. Instead, we offer impressions with greater accuracy using digital technology. We gather a series of digital images of your teeth and gums. We then combine these images to create a 3D model of your smile, which helps us create custom-made aligners and retainers, design TMJ appliances, and plan your treatment. The process only takes a few minutes, and helps facilitate treatment with greater precision. For teens and adults undergoing Invisalign® treatment, this is often the first step toward a straighter smile!
Planning Your Treatment With I-Cat
As part of the diagnostic process, we may also employ computerized tomography. With I-Cat, we use advanced technology to offer a detailed picture of your smile as a whole. We can then plan treatment with greater accuracy, target specific areas of the smile to offer a better diagnosis, and help in the design and fabrication of customized appliances and aligners.
Faster Results with Propel®
On average, addressing misalignment with braces means up to two years of treatment before we can remove them and you can enjoy a straighter smile. In order to hasten the process while ensuring optimal results, we now provide accelerated orthodontic treatment using Propel® and Propel®VPro5. To reduce the amount of time braces take, the system actually uses technology to stimulate the growth and formation of the jawbone tissues surrounding your teeth. This helps them move into optimal positions and remain there in a shorter time frame. Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment use the device each day for around five minutes, as the system helps stimulate the jawbone growth with gentle vibrations. The device is small, easy to store, and simple to use. If you have any questions about the technology we use to help our patients enjoy optimal results and a comfortable, convenient treatment process, then contact our team today. From children to adults, we’re ready to help your entire family enjoy better oral health.
