Not Your Mother’s Braces: How Orthodontic Technology Has Changed

Keeping up with current technology is a constant battle within industries we deal with everyday. As new developments surface, professionals are faced with the added pressure of making sure they are well-versed in the field and aligned with the most up-to-date training in their specific specialties. Orthodontic treatment is one of the most painstakingly particular professions imaginable, as practitioners are tasked with straightening out a smile for a lifetime.

Milnor Orthodontics takes the time to ensure they are in-the-know with the latest developments in the orthodontic field. Your practice should always evolve as the years go on, and Dr. Laura Milnor strives to deliver the treatment your teeth deserve. A smile is the first thing we all notice upon entering a room, a friendly face looking to say hello when we need it most. This personal asset is one that Dr. Milnor holds close to her heart, and she has put in the work to make her clients know their smiles matters to her.

Thriving in Three Dimensions

Not only does Dr. Milnor make sure she is taking note of all the happenings in the orthodontic world, she brings them right into her office. 3D printing sounds like a feat of the future, but it is actually a process Milnor incorporates into her everyday to-do list. Their in-office 3D printer is used to create retainers and teeth models for appliances. 

Three-dimensional imaging done with an iTero Scanner allows patients to have a closer look at what is going on with their teeth and see what their new and improved smile will look like after treatment.

Customizable Smile Curation

Milnor Orthodontics is truly on the forefront of the technological landscape being blazed in the orthodontics world. The practice now implements the evolutionary science of customizable braces by KL Owen Braces Though the word “custom” can sometimes mean a higher price tag, that is not the case with customizable braces from Milnor. 

Because of the efficiency both in application and time, we are saving our staff resources while getting you the perfect smile faster. The team is able to help you envision what your smile will look like in the future, create imprints of that smile, and then customize your braces based on those imprints. The use of technology in the dental world is growing at an incredible rate, but luckily for her patients, Dr. Milnor is able to keep up with it.

As we have mentioned before, we use iTero technology to guarantee our patients are getting the closest look at their chompers. The precision that this development holds is incomparable, and we are able to offer our clients an experience that gives them a firsthand look at what’s going on inside their mouths. That isn’t something we always want, but it is what we need.

Don’t Miss A Beat With Your Braces

Our teeth are our closest confidants when you think about it closely. They know all of our secrets, and were there for our first kisses and worst lies. Maybe you should reward them in return. As always, this year new technology will be unveiled, and your teeth should benefit from it. Dr. Milnor works tirelessly in guaranteeing her practice is top notch when it comes to tooth technology.

COVID-19 has hit us hard, and our teeth have been impacted more than we would consider.
