Modern Technology for More Efficient Orthodontics
Along with our team’s extensive experience, our advanced technology is a significant factor in the high success rate of our treatment plans. New technology produces better results, with fewer visits and shortened treatment times. For instance, our nickel-titanium-alloy arch wires provide patients with temperature sensitive braces that allow for continuous tooth movement over longer periods of time. Additionally, self-ligating brackets don’t require elastic ligatures, allowing them to work more precisely with fewer adjustments. Other forms of orthodontic technology include:
iTero® Digital Scanners
We also employ iTero® digital scanners to aid in the treatment planning process. With iTero® technology, we streamline the process of making impressions of your teeth and gums for orthodontic treatment. The impressions are critical for your treatment’s design, and they provide greater accuracy with no mess compared to gooey impression material.
i-CAT for Orthodontics
Like other computerized tomography technology, i-CAT offers superior diagnostic and planning results for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. The customizable field of view allows us to capture broader or more targeted images as needed for faster, more detailed results.
Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics
During orthodontic treatment, the goal is to move teeth into more symmetrical positions, which requires a shift and reformation of the jawbone and periodontal tissues. Typically, this bone reformation can take up to two years to complete. However, with Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics, you can complete your treatment in almost half the time. Propel® utilizes advanced technology to stimulate bone growth and formation around your teeth, allowing for quicker and more successful orthodontic correction.
Propel® VPro5 is an innovative device that uses gentle vibrations to facilitate faster and more successful treatment. The Propel® VPro5 is a single device that you use for approximately five minutes each day, and the mouthpiece and device are simple to clean, store, and use when necessary.
