The goo is gone! Our office uses the iTero scanner instead of the traditional gooey and uncomfortable mouthtrays required for traditional impression. Not only is it more comfortable, it is also more accurate. The iTero scanner also has an Invisalign outcome simulator which can show you the end result of treatment from the very beginning.
Maybe you’re a gold bracket kinda person or clear brackets? Or maybe you like classic silver braces and bands. Between bracket colors and options, and rubber band color options, we have as many options as you have crooked teeth.
It sounds like James Bond stuff – but Biolase lasers used in our office allows us to put finishing touches on your smile that other orthodontists usually don’t. We use Biolase to sculpt gumlines to perfection. Biolase is also used to reduce heavy gum tissues like frenulums (that thick gum tissue between the front, two top teeth). Ask us about these high-tech and comfortable procedures to really perfect your smile!
See You at Seven
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age seven. Relax, we’re not trying to put braces on your seven year old, but vigilant examination can anticipate the best time to begin treatment. Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Prudent intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, Dr Garn and Dr. Mason can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal. In a perfect world, we can have their teeth straight way before Homecoming pictures.
