Orthodontic Advancements for Better Care

Advancements in orthodontics have allowed us to offer better orthodontic care. The following are just some of the advancements and technologies we take advantage of every single day:

Digital X-Rays: Digital X-Rays have allowed our Roy orthodontic specialists to have better, clearer images of your teeth and jaw structure. Today, we do not have to wait for the X-Ray to be developed, we can access the images immediately!

3D Dental Imaging: In addition to digital X-Rays, 3D dental imaging provides a 360 degree view of the mouth, teeth, and jaw. This is great for our doctors to fully understand and develop your orthodontic treatment plan.

ITero Scanner: Instead of manually creating teeth impressions, we can now make digital impressions on our computers! This is easier for the patient and the doctor.

New Hardware: For metal braces, we no longer use stainless steel. Instead, we utilize nickel or copper-titanium wires which bend more naturally with your teeth as they shift. This has allowed us to cut down on tightening appointments which saves the patient and the orthodontist time!

Invisalign: Invisalign has taken orthodontics by storm. Not only is it incredibly effective for most orthodontic cases, it is almost entirely invisible. This is a huge orthodontic advancement that allows teens and adults to feel more confident while undergoing orthodontic care.

Temporary Anchorage Devices: When stubborn teeth will not move, we can now help them along with temporary anchorage devices. These are mini screws or mini implants that will assist in shifting the teeth.

Robotic Wire Bending Technology: For some forms of braces, your Roy orthodontic staff may utilize robotic wire bending technology to ensure each individual wire of your braces perfectly fits your teeth for comfort and effectiveness.

Clear Braces: In addition to Invisalign, clear braces have also given patients a more discrete look when undergoing orthodontic treatment and they are just as effective as traditional metal braces.
