iTero Digital Scanner
One of the first things we do at the beginning of any orthodontic treatment is take an impression of the teeth and bite. With our iTero scanner, we simply place a small camera in the mouth, and within minutes, an extremely detailed digital impression is created. This approach is faster, more comfortable, and more accurate than taking a traditional physical impression, plus our patients no longer have to deal with biting into a mold filled with gooey dental putty!
3D Printing Lab
Our practice is proud to offer our own clear aligner treatment, Duo Aligners, which costs less but delivers better results in less time compared to the major brands. Plus, getting started with Duo is easy, because we 3D print our aligners in-house! You won’t have to wait weeks for a lab to create your treatment, plus if you ever lose or break an aligner, we can quickly give you a replacement to ensure you stay on track.
Low Dose Digital X-Rays & CT Scans
With digital x-rays and availability of 3D CT scanning when indicated, we are able to better plan our treatments and personalize them to the smallest detail to suit someone’s specific needs. A traditional dental X-ray is great for looking at just a few teeth, but given that we usually need to move all of the teeth as well as the bite, we need a little more information than what they can offer. With lowdose digital xrays and a cone beam CT scanner, when needed, multiple X-rays are captured at several angles and pieced together to create a 3D model that shows all of the teeth as well as the adjacent structures in a single image. This helps us better plan our treatments and personalize them to the smallest detail to suit someone’s specific needs.
Remote Assessment Portal
They say that the hardest step of any process is the first one, but not at Duo Orthodontics! Our Remote Assessment Portal allows our team to evaluate your smile and determine your treatment options without you having to step foot in our office. You simply take a few pictures of your teeth at certain angles, send them our way, and that’s it! We’ll respond very quickly, making this the most convenient way possible to start your orthodontic journey.
