Cone Beam Scanner 3D Imaging
3D imaging provides better quality and more detailed images than traditional x-rays. This new technology is also less invasive and emits less radiation than traditional x-ray machines.
In addition to being much more comfortable for the patient, using the scanner allows us to be more efficient and accurate, which can result in a reduced number of visits to the office, saving the patient time.
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, 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 it is better for you and the environment!

TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices)
Temporary anchorage devices or TADs are surgical grade titanium temporary mini implants. They are used in conjunction with braces to move teeth in directions that were previously impossible. They allow for orthodontic treatment with fewer appliances and minimize dental compromises. The use of TADs have reduced the need for expensive surgeries and tooth replacement of previously extracted or congenitally missing teeth.
