Advances in orthodontic treatment
Taking orthodontic treatment to great heights
Here at Smile Style Orthodontics, we love shiny new things - and that includes pieces of specialist orthodontic equipment.
We feel very fortunate to be able to work in an industry where developments in technology have immediate benefit for our patients. That is why we are committed to using the latest, most up-to-date orthodontic technology around.
Here's some of the technology we have for your benefit at Smile Style Orthodontics.
Every one of our patients has a different orthodontic need, so treatment time differs. However, on average it usually takes 18-24 months to straighten your teeth. Now image being able to cut that time in half by between 30 and 50 percent. That's exactly what AcceleDent allows you to do.
AcceleDent is a small, hands-free device which you only need to use for 20 minutes a day during treatment. This is enough to help speed up the rate at which your teeth move. Simply place it between your teeth while you're getting ready for work, making breakfast or vacuuming the house, and you'll see noticeable benefits to your treatment results.
IntraOral Digital Scanner
The very best treatment results start with precision planning. At Smile Style Orthodontics, we ensure we take accurate impressions of your teeth right at the start of treatment so we can get the results we want. These impressions are taken using the IntraOral digital scanner.
This scanner uses a small wand to scan your teeth, bringing up an immediate picture on the scanner's screen. This pops up in 3D and allows you to see how we view your teeth. But that's not the best bit. Using these impressions, we can actually get an image of how your teeth will look like after treatment.
In addition to using state-of-the-art orthodontic technology, we also look to use the very best appliances. This includes self-ligating braces as well as Invisalign. Both of these appliances can work quickly to straighten your teeth and, in the case of Invisalign Lite and Invisalign i7, you could see minor corrections to the six front teeth in as little as three months.
