Advanced Methods of Treatment for a Beautiful Smile
Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, Suresmile, and the Damon Brace System
We want you to know that we offer only the most advanced methods of treatment for our patients. We attend yearly educational seminars so that we may learn about the newest techniques. We want your orthodontic experience to be the best it can be. We strive to complete your treatment in the shortest time, with the most comfort, and with the best results.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
That is why we offer Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. Both modalities begin with a computer scan. Dr. Stevenson plans your treatment and the aligners are made with Invisalign's proprietary SmarTrack material. Aligners are worn 22 hours a day and can easily be removed for eating and brushing of the teeth. As treatment progresses, the smile will transform through a series of small, expertly designed shifts until the desired result is achieved.
SureSmile is a digital technology that helps acheive faster, more precise results. This treatment begins with a computer scan as well. From the scan, a 3-D model of the teeth alllows Dr. Stevenson to analyze your bite from every possible angle. Using this model and SureSmile's analytical tools, custom-shaped archwires are made using state-of-the-art robotic tecnhology. This means the teeth begin moving directly towards the prescribed position after the archwire is inserted. Great results will happen in a shorter treatment time than previously possible with conventional orthodontics.
Damon Brace System
Fast treatment time, fewer office visits, outstanding comfort, and extraordinary results are the benefits of Damon Braces. The Damon Brace System uses tie-less braces and high-technology, memory-shape wires that quickly move teeth and require fewer adjustments. This is a clinically proven treatment approach that aligns teeth and enhances facial aesthetics-usually without extractions. The Damon System creates broad beautiful smiles taking into account each patient's face, profile, and other factors, anticpating what patients will look like in their 40's, 50's, and beyond.
Each treatment method and/or the combination of treatment methods give our patients the best quality treatment, with the most comfort, and in the shortest time possible. If it's your time to straighten your teeth and enhance your smile, we are here for you!
