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.


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.

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. 

3D Digital Imaging

We are excited to now offer an impressive new technology to our patients and to other doctors’ patients who are in need of a CT scan. This technology is the i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D Digital Imaging. Dr. Maria Yazji uses this technique to produce 3D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. With the speed, comfort and low dose radiation of our i-CAT system, Dr. Yazji can precisely plan the exact movement of your teeth.

Apart from moving teeth, orthodontic treatments may affect the position and shape of the surrounding bone, gums, lips, cheeks, and muscles of the face. With our 3D Dental Imaging Technology, Dr. Yazji can create a complete treatment plan considering all the aspects the treatment may affect. This state-of-the-art machine combined with the experience and knowledge of Dr. Yazji, will help our patients achieve a more beautiful and healthy smile in an extremely accurate manner. 

3D imaging assists in precise diagnosis and treatment planning for patients, in many situations. These include diagnosis of impacted teeth, dental implant planning, complex dental reconstruction planning, observation of orthodontic and obstructive sleep apnea patients’ airway characteristics, and TMJ and orthopedic developmental analysis for orthodontic treatment planning. 


Come experience what it’s like to receive a more advanced, patient-friendly dental imaging experience.
