The digital x-rays we utilize in our practice are similar to taking a photo of the teeth and jaws. Our digital x-ray system reduces patient radiation exposure and makes the process more pleasant overall. Using digital x-rays, we can get clear pictures in only a few minutes, and the data is uploaded straight to our computers. Dr. C can make more informed judgments about your care because of the superior quality of the pictures produced by these x-rays.
At Braces by Dr. C, we are always looking for new ways to improve our practice. This is precisely why the introduction of 3D printing technology into our business has us over the moon. With the help of this cutting-edge technology, we can design appliances that are both more comfortable and highly effective. Because of the versatility of 3D printing, we can offer our patients quicker fabrication of appliances and retainers to make their treatment decisions. We are positive that the 3D printing technology we have invested in will allow us to give our patients the most excellent orthodontic care available.
We Are An Impressionless Practice
We take pride in having an impressionless orthodontic office, employing cutting-edge technology and new approaches to give our customers a smooth, pleasant, and accurate experience. Our commitment to providing high-quality, eco-friendly orthodontic treatment in Bartlesville and Tulsa, OK, has propelled us to the forefront of the industry, and we hope to change how professionals and patients perceive the process of getting a beautiful smile.
Previously, orthodontic impressions were taken by creating a mold of the patient’s teeth with a special putty. This technique was frequently unpleasant and messy. We have eliminated the necessity for these obsolete and cumbersome ways as an impressionless practice. To collect detailed and exact photographs of our patient’s oral anatomy, we instead use modern 3D digital scanners and intraoral cameras. This digital data allows us to build unique treatment plans for each patient, resulting in a more accurate and efficient orthodontic journey.
iTero Digital Scanner
Before the introduction of the iTero Element Scanner in 2009, the choices for digital oral scanning were limited. Offices had to pick between low-quality intraoral scanners and enormous, costly, difficult-to-use extraoral scanners. As a result, many orthodontists continued to use traditional impression-taking techniques, such as putty and tray impressions.
Braces by Dr. C is proud to offer patients the convenience of the iTero Element, which revolutionized intraoral scanning with a high-quality, user-friendly intraoral scanner. Since its introduction, the iTero Element has become the industry standard for oral scanning and has helped to transform the manufacturing of dental prostheses.
At Braces by Dr. C, we employ cutting-edge technology, like the iTero Scanner, to guarantee that our patients receive the finest possible treatment. The iTero Scanner is an advanced tool that allows us to build a 3D picture of your teeth and mouth, which is then utilized to develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient. The iTero Scanner is also used to make Invisalign impressions by assisting us in creating an accurate picture utilized to build your customized aligners, a popular alternative to traditional metal braces.
