Advances in Digital X-rays

Advances in digital x-rays have brought about many benefits that orthodontists can now enjoy. Compared to older methods, digital x-rays offer immediate access to the image with better quality. This allows orthodontists to get a more detailed look at the structure of the mouth, therefore facilitating the work. 3D dental imaging has also proven to be advantageous as there is less radiation. One imaging system can provide a full set of x-rays in one 360 degree scans, which then creates 3D images of the teeth.

Easier and More Precise Brace Creation

Advances in technology allow orthodontists to create teeth impressions digitally instead of manually. We do this by first scanning the patient’s mouth and then viewing the impressions on the computer. Again, because it’s digital, access to the images are available rather quickly. The digital scans also offer a better impression, therefore making for a more accurate brace creation and reducing the number of fit issues.
