Treatment Enhancing Technology

Cone Beam technology provides a 3D digital tomographic view of the patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas. The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.

The use of the iTero® scanner allows the doctor to take digital impressions of the patients teeth. Patients will have a comfortable, impression-free experience. Enjoy the benefits of a high-tech, chairside experience without the mess and gagging associated with traditional impressions. Using the scanner allows us to be more efficient and can reduce the number of visits to the office, saving you time.

Using SureSmile® provides your orthodontist the opportunity to visualize different treatment plans and to view your individual tooth anatomy from every angle and dimension. This ability to visualize and plan tooth and root positions within a supporting bone is changing the way orthodontists approach treatment planning. It’s also enabling them to plan better quality and long-lasting results for their patients. With SureSmile® 6.0, orthodontists are able to focus on treatments with improved precision and collaborate with specialists more efficiently.

With the rapid advancement in orthodontic technologies, doctors are evaluating what will drive the most significant improvements in their patients’ outcomes. That’s why orthodontists are paying so much attention to the measurable difference of the SureSmile® treatment optimization system. Comparative studies show that doctors using the SureSmile® system are able to significantly reduce treatment times and simultaneously improve outcome quality.

SureSmile® is the only system for fixed appliances that can provide active management of treatment objectives and appliance design. A SureSmile appliance can be refined at any time during treatment and SureSmile® software provides tools for analysis of results and decision-making support.

Unlike other orthodontic systems, SureSmile® has left the precision, control and skill to the orthodontist. Ever since orthodontists have been using SureSmile® technology and clinical support, doctors have the unprecedented ability to plan and control treatment that deliver high quality outcomes every time.

Wilckodontics®, also known as AAO™, or Advanced Osteogenic Orthodontics, allows orthodontic treatment to be completed in a much shorter time than traditional braces, often in as little as 3 to 8 months.

Using a minimally invasive periodontal procedure to soften the bone which supports the teeth, Wilckodontics® can accelerate the movement of the teeth into the desired position in about 50%-70% less time. Once the teeth are in the appropriate position, the patient wears braces and special Wilckodontics® appliances until the bone hardens around the teeth.

Propel® is a scientifically proven treatment that stimulates bone and accelerates the re-alignment of individual teeth 50% faster than traditional braces.

The use of lasers in dentistry has brought about many great advancements. The use of lasers allows for procedures that are less painful, reduce the amount of tissue loss, and provide a reduction in bleeding. The use of a laser allows some procedures to be performed without the use of a drill or the need for a shot. Our practice uses lasers to improve your experience in our practice allowing us to provide technologically advanced care.

An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time. With an intraoral camera, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
