3D Images & Printer
3D imaging is one of the newer technological advancements to revolutionize the field of orthodontics. Our 3D imaging and printer provide more precise treatment planning and appliances. With the advantages of 3D imaging and printing, we can now scan your oral cavity to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. Avoiding traditional goopy impressions is a huge advantage for young patients especially as traditional impressions can be difficult and scary for some patients.
iTero Intraoral 3D Scanner
We use a wand-like device, known as the iTero Intraoral 3D Scanner, to procedure high-quality digital impressions. That means no goopy impressions for you or your little one! A simple digital scan taking a few minutes and we have a digital impression that we can easily send to our lab for 3D printing and fabrication of your appliance or Invisalign®.
An iTero impression is typically used to design and fabricate Invisalign® aligner trays and appliances including Expanders which many of our younger patients have as part of early orthodontic treatment. Each tray in your series of aligners is custom-fit to slowly move your teeth to a more proper position.
PROMAX 3D IMAGING
The Planmeca ProMax 3D is a groundbreaking device for CBCT scanning. Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT, is a diagnostic x-ray technique that produces a three-dimensional image of the hard and soft tissues in your face. In orthodontics, we use ProMax 3D technology to gather information on your temporomandibular joint (TMJ),skeletal structure, impacted teeth that are not erupting, evaluation of extra teeth, missing teeth, unusual tooth anatomy, pathology and various other complex orthodontic issues. This helps us get much more information than a normal digital x-ray so Dr. Seth can make an accurate diagnosis and ideal treatment plan. The best part… unlike many orthodontic offices we never refer you out or charge our patients extra for this advanced technology.
Traditional x-rays required a chemical film development process that is tedious, time-consuming, and harmful to the environment. These days, we use digital x-rays for diagnosis and treatment planning. Instead of film, digital x-rays use an electronic sensor to capture images of your mouth. Digital x-rays have some advantages over traditional methods, including higher-quality images, significantly lower radiation exposure emission, and instant images! At Senestraro Family Orthodontics we use the latest in digital technology to ensure the safest and best quality images possible.
Carriere Motion Appliance
The Carriere Motion appliance is often used as a preliminary step in orthodontic treatment and used in conjunction Invisalign® aligners to correct your bite efficiently. Using the simple carriere appliance allows us to treat difficult cases with Invisalign® that were once not possible. The appliance is an effective alternative for correcting posterior malocclusions commonly referred to as overbite and underbite. In many instances, it can shave months off your treatment time with braces.
3M METAL AND CLARITY CERAMIC BRACKETS
We use the very best quality brackets and wires so you can have the best experience possible. 3M pre-pasted brackets are sterilized and sealed in individual packets. These brackets have adhesive factory applied and Senestraro Family Orthodontics uses only the best bonding materials and techniques. Our clear ceramic Clarity brackets by 3M are the gold standard for clear braces, beautiful esthetic brackets that don’t stain, rarely break, and are placed and removed with ease and comfort. We pride ourselves in using heat-activated nickel titanium wires. This metal alloy applies a very low and gradual pressure on your teeth making alignment as comfortable and pain free as possible.
What does this mean for you? With the amazing team at Senestraro Family Orthodontics and the best materials you will have the most efficient, comfortable, and effective orthodontic treatment possible!
With many more companies recently offering clear aligners to orthodontists, dentists, and consumers Dr. Seth only uses Invisalign aligners. Despite these alternative options Invisalign is still light years ahead on aligner technology. Dr. Seth has spent thousands of hours and treated countless patients using Invisalign ensuring you will get a smile you will love with clear aligners.
