How do we design and create your orthodontics? Whether you have aligners, braces, retainers, or require custom oral appliances, we use iTero® digital technology. We can plan and create your appliances and aligners and offer treatment for Fort Worth, TX, patients.
The iTero® System
When you come to us seeking treatment, we will perform a thorough examination to assess the cause and extent of your misalignment, which is essential for deciding which treatment will best benefit your smile. If we need to design and create an orthodontic appliance or aligner, then the next step is using the iTero® system to take detailed images of your smile, using these images to craft a 3D computer model. The image enables our team to design your orthodontics and plan your treatment with accuracy and precision, creating comfortable appliances and orthodontics. We can then discuss your treatment and even show possible results.
Creating Invisalign® Aligners
For our patients receiving Invisalign®, we will employ iTero® to create a series of aligners from a BPA-free acrylic material. Each set will be clear and comfortable, custom-made for your smile. They will be worn for about two weeks, 20 to 22 hours a day. The patient then upgrades to a new set as the smile is gradually and gently repositioned, correcting misalignment for both teens and adults in as little as one year. If you have minor or severe misalignment, and would like to learn more about our clear aligners, then contact our team today.
TMJ Appliances and More
If you have TMJ disorder, in which pain develops due to strain on the jaw joints, you may need treatment to prevent problems opening and closing your mouth, as well as headaches, clicking or popping in the jaw, jaw pain, and aches in the neck or shoulders, then you need treatment. We will create a custom-made oral appliance using digital technology. The appliance is worn at night and actually repositions the jaw to ease tension and strain. We may also use the technology to create aligners to protect teeth from teeth grinding, or to design and fabricate retainers and other aligners for patients of all ages. If you have any questions about treating misalignment or TMJ disorder, or about how we implement digital technology to design and craft our orthodontic treatment options, then contact our team today.
