Why Choose Willow Bend Orthodontics
for Advanced Orthodontic Technology?
No More Messy Dental Putty!
- Digital X-Rays: Better Images, Less Radiation
In the past, creating a dental impression meant having to place uncomfortable putty in the patient’s mouth. Thankfully, we utilize an advanced 3D scanner that captures an ultra-accurate replication of your teeth and bite instead, which is much quicker and more comfortable. As we move the device around the mouth, thousands of detailed frames are captured per second and pieced together to create a 3D model. These models are a vital part of the orthodontic process, allowing us to plan for aligners, retainers, and/or bracket placement with plenty of confidence.
One of the most unique features of Willow Bend Orthodontics is that we have an in-house 3D printer! This technology allows us to create customized braces through the use of indirect bonding trays, which allow for the extremely precise placement of brackets. We can also print retainers following the completion of you or your loved one’s orthodontic journey. Plus, if we need to make any adjustments to ensure your appliance fits just right, they can be done in-office – no weeks of waiting required.
Throughout your orthodontic treatment, as your teeth shift into alignment, your roots located below your gumline will too. Our digital X-ray system allows us to clearly see this area to make sure there are no complications or issues that are hidden to the naked eye. Not only are digital X-rays significantly faster and more convenient, but the process also emits 90 percent less radiation, making them safer as well!
