We utilize the latest technological advances in orthodontics so you can have the most comfortable, convenient, and effective treatment possible. Check out some of the technology we use below!
This technology allows us to make more accurate digital impressions and customize your treatment.
This speeds up treatment time and improves orthodontic efficiency for a straighter smile without you having to spend months or years in braces.
This scanner uses visible light, so there’s no exposure to radiation. It eliminate the unpleasantness associated with traditional impressions, which has resulted in less anxiety and more comfort for our patients.
We use digital X-rays to capture detailed images of your teeth, jaws, and facial bones, helping us catch any potential problems that may go unseen with traditional X-rays.
This advanced imaging technology allows us to evaluate the underlying bone structure, as well as the nerve pathways and surrounding soft tissues.
Based on the same technology used to help broken bones heal and regenerate, these devices emit gentle, pulse vibrations to safely speed up tooth movement up to 50% faster!
This provides us with a detailed 3D computer model of your teeth, which allows us to plan individual tooth movements resulting in shorter times and higher quality results.
