We Use The Latest In Ortho Technology
Impression scanners are the latest in digital dentistry and are the standard of care at Patel&Womble Orthodontics. One of our assistants slides the scanner across your teeth to create a highly accurate and precise 3D digital model of your teeth.
Patel & Womble Orthodonticshas implemented ultra-low dose 3D x-ray technology at their office. This allows Dr. Patel to precisely capture accurate 3D views of the teeth and the jaws at 75% LESS exposure compared to 2D low dosage digital orthodontic x-rays. 3D x-rays give more accurate and undistorted views to diagnosis and treatment plan with a greater amount of precision in comparison to a traditional 2D x-ray machine. The scan allows us to visualize any abnormalities in tooth eruption, tooth formation, and tooth position with unparalleled accuracy. The views of the patient go beyond just the teeth but provide views of the patient’s airways.
The Carriere Motion Appliance is an orthodontic device developed to correct the bite and avoid the need for headgear, jaw surgery and removal of permanent teeth. With an effect similar to headgear, but without the use of a bulky appliance, the Carriere Motion Appliance pushes upper teeth back to correct the bite.
Dr. Womble offers AcceleDent. With this technology patients use a mouthpiece – fitted around their existing orthodontics – and use an Activator for 20 minutes every day. The AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement by its small vibrations, or micropulses, allowing for faster tooth movement. Faster tooth movement decreases your time in treatment and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
