Accelerated Orthodontics – VPro5
Our orthodontists stay ahead of the curve in the advancements in orthodontic technology. Traditional metal braces used to be one of the only ways to straighten your teeth, and could take an average of 2 years or longer to complete! VPro5 straightens teeth using low and high frequency vibration technology to encourage gentler, faster and more comfortable orthodontic alignment of your smile. By pairing this revolutionary new technology with braces or Invisalign, your teeth may move up to 30% faster, letting you embrace your confident new smile without the hassle or wait. The FDA approved VPro5 is used for only 5 minutes per day. It vibrates gently to help ensure that aligners are fully engaged with secure and proper seating. The micro-pulses are gentle and exert up to 10x less power than a toothbrush. So it’s even more gentle than brushing your teeth. Ask Dr. Davidson or Dr. Stuart, if a faster, beautiful smile is an option for you!
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, so there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!
Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
Using Electronic Medical Records, our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care. This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper. Using a digital format allows for quick access to patient information when needed for insurance records while providing a secure filing system.
Digital Intraoral Cameras
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, patients are able to better understand what is happening and review the status of their oral health.
Digital Flat Screen Monitors
These television monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients can watch a movie or TV show. Patients can also view their dental x-rays when speaking to the doctor about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.
iTero digital scanner enables the doctor to take a 3D digital scan of the patient’s teeth and bite, make adjustments in real time, and transmit the file wirelessly for processing by any orthodontic lab or Invisalign. No more messy “goop” impressions are needed to accomplish the desired smile enhancements.
