The Most Advanced Braces Technology
Like fingerprints, your smile is unique. So why shouldn't your orthodontic treatment be too? Imagine walking into a store looking for headache medicine, chances are you will be presented with a lot of choices that are not specific to your headache. Now, imagine walking into that same store only to find headache medicine built just for your specific need. Pretty cool, right? Well, that is what Space Center Orthodontics does for braces…a truly customized approach to each patient’s orthodontic treatment.
At Space Center Orthodontics, we are all about technology and its benefits to our patients. The most recent technology in orthodontics involves Customized Digital Braces, taking a 3D digital scan of the teeth as well as a 3D x-ray and merging them to create a 3D mold of your teeth on the computer. The 3D image gives Dr. Bhagia 360 degree access, allowing him to evaluate individual crown shape and root angulations and then virtually placing customized braces at the ideal spot with the help of computerized design. Placing braces by this process is much easier since we no longer have to contend with a moving patient and obviously, much more accurate. It also allows us to virtually simulate the position the teeth will move to when a wire is inserted. Once the position of the braces is finalized virtually, a composite shell is created to hold onto the teeth with the braces. In the clinic, this composite shell is used to transfer the braces to the teeth in the precise intended position while facilitating patient comfort.
HOW DO I GET THE BRACES ON?
When you return to the office a few days later, your braces are already positioned in accurate, personalized composite trays made just for you. All of the braces are placed braces can be placed all at once, quickly and effectively. The less than comfortable retractors that are needed to keep your teeth dry are only in place for as little as 10 minutes.
Patients are often amazed at how quickly and easily braces can be placed with this method. It isn’t widely used in the profession because of the time, expense, and technique sensitivity of the process, but Dr. Bhagia has incorporated it into his practice, making it a predictable, comfortable procedure.
