Technology

Our office employs many types of new technology.  These technologies benefit our patients by offering improved diagnosis and care.

iTero Intra Oral Digital Scanner

With state-of-the-art technology and our progressive orthodontic office providing your treatment, making a great-and comfortable- first impression with the iTero scanner has never been easier.

The iTero scanner allows us to take a digital impression-a high accurate, digital 3D image of the individual characteristics of your teeth and gum tissue.  The iTero is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery, without the goop or gagging associated with conventional impressions.

In addition, the digital scan can also be used for Invisalign services that are used to deliver the beautiful smile of your dreams! It delivers precise fit of Invisalign aligners and retainers. You can view 3D scans onscreen immediately and it helps result in faster delivery times of your personalized Invisalign treatment plan!

Digital Xray Machines

Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, so there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!  Both our Wakefield and Westerly office house Digital Xray Machines!
