Learn more about how modern orthodontics can quickly give you results you’ll love!

Understanding the concept of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in diagnosing, preventing, and treating malocclusion (improper alignment) of teeth and jaws. It involves the application of braces or other corrective appliances to straighten teeth and realign jaws. Orthodontic treatments can be used to correct an improper bite, close gaps between teeth, or improve one’s overall oral health.


Overview of Advanced Orthodontic Technology

In recent years, orthodontic technology has greatly advanced with new technologies such as digital imaging, invisible braces, self-ligating brackets, and low-force appliances. These advancements have allowed for more precise diagnoses and better treatment planning, making orthodontic treatment more comfortable for patients.


Benefits and Advantages for Patients

Advanced orthodontic technology has numerous benefits and advantages for patients, including improved accuracy, fewer office visits, reduced pain and discomfort, and increased comfort with invisible braces or low-force appliances. These advances in technology have allowed more efficient treatments with better results overall.


Types of Advanced Orthodontic Technology

  1. Invisible Braces: ClearCorrect, Invisalign, Incognito: Invisible braces are an increasingly popular orthodontic appliance that uses clear aligners to gradually move teeth into the desired position without using traditional metal brackets or wires. ClearCorrect, Invisalign, and Incognito are the three most common invisible braces available today. These appliances are virtually undetectable when worn, making them an ideal option for adult patients who want to maintain a more natural appearance during treatment.
  2. Acceledent Aura: Accelerated Treatment Option: The Acceledent Aura device is a revolutionary technology that uses gentle vibrations to accelerate tooth movement during orthodontic treatment. This device reduces the time it takes teeth to move into their desired position and can shorten overall treatment time by up to 50%. It also helps reduce discomfort associated with traditional braces while providing faster results.
  3. Digital Imaging: 3D Models to Enhance Prediction and Efficiency: Digital imaging is a form of advanced orthodontic technology that uses 3D models to accurately represent the patient’s teeth and jaws. This allows for more precise diagnoses and treatment planning and improved accuracy in predicting the outcome of different treatments. It also enables orthodontists to identify potential problems before they occur and adjust accordingly.


Precision in Diagnostics and Treatment Planning with Advanced Orthodontic Technology

  1. High-Fidelity X-rays Using Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Scans: Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans are a type of high-resolution X-ray used in orthodontic treatments. These scans are taken in a single rotation and provide three-dimensional images of the teeth and jaws with superior accuracy. They allow for more precise diagnoses and treatment planning and improved accuracy in predicting the outcome of different treatments.
  2. Intraoral Scanners: Intraoral scanners are digital devices that use high-resolution cameras to scan the mouth and create digital models of the patient’s teeth and jaws. These models can create customized orthodontic appliances or guide tooth movement during treatment. This advanced technology is especially beneficial for pediatric patients, as it decreases exposure to radiation from traditional X-rays while providing more accurate results overall.
  3. Digital Modeling for Accurate Treatment Planning: Digital modeling is a form of advanced orthodontic technology that uses 3D models to create highly accurate representations of the patient’s teeth and jaws. This technology allows orthodontists to predict how different treatments will affect the outcome, identify potential problems before they occur, and adjust accordingly. Digital modeling also reduces treatment time by eliminating the need for multiple appointments or adjustments throughout treatment.


Enhancing Comfort during Orthodontic Treatment

  1. Self-Ligating Brackets: Fewer Office Visits and Reduced Friction: Self-ligating braces are an increasingly popular orthodontic appliance that uses a slide mechanism to attach the brackets, eliminating the need for elastics or ties. This reduces friction and irritation in the mouth and decreases the amount of time spent in the office for adjustments. Additionally, self-ligating braces allow teeth to move into their desired position faster than traditional metal braces.
  2. Low Force Appliances: Reducing Trauma, Irritation, and Pain: Low-force appliances are another type of advanced orthodontic technology that can reduce trauma, irritation, and pain associated with traditional metal braces. These appliances use various forces (such as light springs) to move teeth gradually over time without causing any damage to the gums or surrounding tissues. Low-force appliances can also shorten treatment time when compared to traditional braces.



With the world of orthodontic treatment advancing quickly and with treatments becoming more comfortable, more accessible, and more precise than ever before, now is the perfect time to start considering the important benefits that orthodontic treatment can bring to your child’s smile.
