The Benefits of Orthodontic Technology
Dental and orthodontic technologies are constantly changing, leading to amazing new innovations that have many benefits, including:
More detailed and accurate imaging, which lets us see exactly what is going on inside the mouth.
Less invasive treatments.
Less discomfort for patients, which can be especially helpful for children.
Less mess and hassle, with no goopy impression substances such as those that used to be needed for 3D impressions (molds).
Quick imaging results that can be reviewed and compared easily on a computer.
Treatments that work faster with less pain and discomfort.
More precision means better treatments, which means better overall results for patients.
In short, new innovations in orthodontic technology make things more efficient and convenient. The best orthodontists keep up with these latest technologies and make them available to patients once they have been tested and shown to be safe and effective.
VPro+ High-Frequency Vibration Device
At Busciglio Smiles, we see many patients that choose Invisalign clear aligner technology. While Invisalign may typically take 12 months or more to straighten teeth, this time frame can be reduced dramatically thanks to VPro+.
What is VPro+? It is a high frequency vibration device that patients use for five minutes per day. The vibrations help to stimulate circulation and bone metabolism. With this safe and easy technology, patients can move through each set of clear aligners much more quickly. In many cases, the time can be sped up as much as three times (for example, reducing 14 days to 5 days).
The great thing about VPro+ is that it is convenient and easy to use. It is water resistant and has wireless charging. The device also comes with a compact travel case for convenience.
Once the Invisalign clear aligner treatment is done, the VPro+ device can be used to help during the orthodontic retention period. The vibration device has been clinically proven to improve bone quality, and it can also speed up the remodeling of periodontal (gum) tissue.
CBCT Scanner (Cone Beam Computed Tomography)
One of the advanced medical imaging technologies we utilize at Busciglio Smiles is the CBCT scanner. CBCT stands for “Cone Beam Computed Tomography.” A CBCT scanner is also sometimes called a C-arm CT, cone beam volume CT, or flat panel CT.
A dental CBCT scanner uses advanced x-ray technology to create a highly detailed three-dimensional image of your teeth and jaw, including bones, soft tissue, and nerves. These 3D images are extremely helpful in precision diagnostics and planning orthodontic treatments.
To obtain this 3D imaging, a motorized, rotating arm takes pictures from all angles as it moves around your head 360 degrees.
Dental CBCT scans can help:
- Assess the current placement of the teeth and jaw.
- Support the treatment of complex root canal cases.
- Pinpoint accurate positioning of dental implants.
Dental CBCT scans are relatively safe, with only a minimal amount of exposure to radiation, about the same amount as you would get on a five-hour airplane flight. Because of this, however, CBCT scans are not recommended for pregnant women.
A hassle-free technology our patients love is the iTero scanner. Before this innovative technology was available, getting a 3D impression of your bite was messy! As in really messy – it involved a goopy compound along with an uncomfortable headgear.
With the iTero scanner, however, we can get a full 3D digital impression of your bite without all the fuss and mess. This advanced optical scanner provides us with a much more accurate and precise picture of what your bite looks like. We can view the structure of your teeth, gums, and jaw without creating a mess.
The best news is, iTero scanning technology is 100% radiation free. It actually uses a state-of-the-art laser to obtain a detailed digital impression. The iTero scanner can be used for both traditional metal braces as well as Invisalign clear aligners. Using the information that we get from the iTero scanner, we can easily plan and monitor your treatment.
