To give you the healthy, beautiful, straight smile you've always wanted, we utilize the most recent innovative digital treatment planning. Using this digital technology, we can create an orthodontic treatment plan that is specifically customized for you.
Each patient's orthodontic condition is unique, which is why we will develop your treatment plan based on your specialized needs. Our treatment planning process involves taking digital photographs, digital X-rays and digital "impressions".
We utilize high-resolution digital photography to capture detailed dental and facial images. These precise images facilitate the most accurate diagnosis and treatment planning and make it easy to keep you thoroughly informed of your treatment progress.
Digital X-rays, or radiographs, are also used in our office to provide us with invaluable information about your oral and dental health and facial growth. By placing a wireless sensor in your mouth and using high-tech computer software, we are able to generate digital images of your mouth significantly faster than traditional X-rays. Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays, reducing your exposure to radiation by 90 percent!
We also utilize a digital "impression" system, which replaces the unpleasant-tasting, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions. Using a digital scanner, we will take three-dimensional (3-D) digital images, or "impressions", of your teeth and bite. These "impressions" are then used at a laboratory where they can custom-fabricate a model of your teeth, braces, orthodontic appliances such as expanders and retainers as well as customize bracket trays to increase the accuracy of your treatment.
All of these digital diagnostic records help us formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and desires. By using this advanced technology, we are able to keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress by comparing your mouth to what it looked like before your treatment began.
