Technology

We couldn’t provide you with the most advanced dental care without implementing some of today’s latest and greatest dental technologies. Our use of technology is aimed at making your dental visit more comfortable, accurate, and safe. Read more about our technology below to see how it may benefit your next orthodontic appointment.

iTero Digital Impressions

Using iTero Digital Impressions, we can do away with messy, uncomfortable impressions. That’s right – no more gooey paste, discomfort, or gagging. With our iTero™ scanner, Dr. Yazji takes highly accurate digital impressions.

The iTero Element scanner is a small, hand-held instrument that fits comfortably in your mouth. The scan is completed in about ten minutes, at which point we’ll see a highly accurate 3-D rendering of your teeth. Using digital imaging, we can also show you your teeth in 3-D so that you can better understand your treatment.  These images are then sent wirelessly to our labs.

This technology completely eliminates the need for a bulky metal tray and sticky paste. Aside from comfort, the iTero scanner delivers a more accurate impression, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable experience. 

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are a type of dental imaging that allows us to send images directly to a computer for storage. In just a few moments, we can view the digitally perfect images on a monitor screen.

Additionally, digital x-rays offer several other advantages over traditional film x-rays. For example, the software allows us to enhance and enlarge the image, which helps our dentist see even more.

Digital images are convenient because they also be sent electronically as needed. Digital images are safer for you because they significantly reduce the amount of radiation by about 90% compared to traditional x-rays. Finally, digital images are better for the environment since we don’t have to dispose of the potentially hazardous materials used with film x-rays.

AcceleDent

AcceleDent is an FDA-approved hands-free device that’s easy to use and can speed up orthodontic treatment with daily use. Just insert the customized mouthpiece over your orthodontics and allow the Activator to work for 20 minutes.

This exciting new technology uses small vibrations, or micropulses, to enhance the movement of your orthodontics. Your orthodontics are designed to work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. But faster movement of your teeth using AcceleDent may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and even make your orthodontics more comfortable.
