Some Benefits of the Orthophos XG 3D:

- 3-D imaging available for more complex cases
One of the more common reasons for taking a 3-D x-ray in orthodontics is to locate impacted teeth (teeth that are stuck). With 3-D imaging, we can precisely locate the teeth in question to create the most comprehensive and efficient treatment approach for you.
We understand if you are in a time crunch and need to finish your orthodontic treatment as soon as possible. Some common reasons for speeding up treatment include:
- Engagement photos
- Moving away for college or job relocation
It can be stressful trying to finish your treatment by a wedding deadline. Or deciding whether you need to transfer to a new doctor in a new city. Accelerated orthodontic treatment may be able to help you better plan your next steps in life.
Your overall orthodontic treatment time can be reduced with Acceledent, a pulse vibration appliance. It is an FDA-cleared medical device that is used for 20 minutes a day along with your braces or Invisalign treatment. It is important that you wear it for a continuous 20-minute period each day for it to be effective.
Advantages of Acceledent:
- The micro-pulsations can actually make your teeth less sore and treatment more comfortable. You can think of it like a massage for your teeth.
- Straightening out your teeth with braces becomes more efficient.
- Invisalign patients can switch out aligners every week instead of every two weeks.
