Technology progresses quickly in so many areas, and the field of dentistry is no exception to this race toward the future.
We are constantly learning new and better ways to treat your teeth and keep them healthy afterward. Our office puts great emphasis on keeping up with the latest technology, and passing those improvements on to you—our patients.
Virtual Consultation Enhanced by Artificial Intelligence
We can accurately and effectively help you make treatment decisions from the comfort of your own home!
This may sound too good to be true—and a few years ago, it was. But improvements in communication technology have allowed us to not only talk to you in a digital consultation, but to have our easily-available mobile apps create and send diagnostic reports about your teeth with nothing more complicated than a standard selfie.
Yes, you read that right. Our apps can look at a selfie of your teeth and use it to send important treatment-tracking information directly to us. This has an enormous number of benefits:
- Appointments are more efficient. If we have detailed information on how your treatments are progressing between appointments, we can adjust treatment plans with much more precision, allowing you to get the most effective dental care possible.
- If an adjustment needs to happen between appointments, no time is wasted. We can immediately notify you without needing you to come into the office.
- Dental anxiety is a common ailment. If dental visits are difficult for you, then it’s great news that our mobile apps allow you to come into the office far less.
You can have professional orthodontic consultations done from the comfort of your own home! This is all thanks to our virtual orthodontic monitoring system: Dental Monitoring.
3D Oral Scanning With iTero Element 2
Our iTero Element 2 scanner allows us to take immensely detailed scans of your mouth. These scans are so precise and so effective that we can even make a digital model of your teeth with no need for any physical impressions or uncomfortable molding processes.
These digital impressions are used for a number of treatments, including the design of orthodontic aligners, treatment plans for braces, crafting of orthodontic appliances, retainers, and so much more.
3D Oral scanning is quick, accurate, and completely radiation-free, making it invaluable as a modern piece of dental technology.
Shifting to Digital With Modern X-Rays
Our office carries a Planmeca 2D digital X-ray machine. What does this mean for you?
Less Waiting | Digital x-rays need no film development or transport time. They transfer directly to the computer in the room, available for immediate viewing.
Less Radiation | Digital x-rays can get clearer and more accurate pictures with far less radiation than traditional film methods.
Less Waste | Without the need for film, vehicle transportation, storage space, and photo paper, digital x-rays are also better for the environment.
Less Cost | We save you time and money with our in-office digital x-ray machine. You don’t have to go to an outside x-ray laboratory to have your orthodontic x-rays taken.
