Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images.
Gagging in our office is a thing of the past. Instead of using an impression material to coat your teeth, which is one of the bad memories often associated with getting braces or Invisalign, we use a digital scanner. Our digital scanner scans your teeth without putty or any material and it is completely pain free! No more Gagging!
Ever wanted to get beautiful, straight teeth – without braces? Our doctors offer complimentary consultations to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
Invisalign offers a cutting-edge approach to orthodontics by using a series of custom-made, invisible aligners. Using 3-D computer imaging, each aligner is specific to your teeth and gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you are wearing the aligners. So you can smile with confidence, both during and after your treatment.
There are no metal brackets or wires to tighten. The clear aligners are virtually invisible to other people so no one will notice you are wearing the aligners. The aligners are also removable, which means you can eat what you want, brush your teeth with ease and floss with no problems. With the complete, virtual treatment plan, you can see the anticipated results before even starting your treatment. Since you have a series of aligners instead of metal wires and brackets, you actually need to go to our office less often to get adjustments.
Using modern 3-D imaging technology, a custom set of aligners is made for you. Every two weeks, you switch to a new aligner. As you switch aligners, your teeth gradually and comfortably shift, resulting in a beautiful smile. We will have you come by their office every six weeks to confirm the progress of your treatment. On average, you will be in treatment for 9 – 15 months and wear 18 – 30 different aligners. However, actual treatment times will depend on your particular case.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually move your teeth into their new positions. Invisalign aligner are made using 3D computer imaging technology, and has proven to be as effective as braces for many orthodontic problems. When you wear these nearly invisible aligners, you can smile more during treatment as well as after!
Metal braces are the most common type of braces and are smaller, less noticeable and more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. We also offer advanced self-ligating braces as well as traditional metal braces. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. These clear braces are a great option for older teens and adults who have cosmetic concerns, but are not candidates for Invisalign treatment. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
