For Superior Care
Dentistry is a constantly evolving field, with exciting new technologies emerging every day. At the Centre for Invisible Braces, Dr. Grussmark keeps our office up-to-date with the latest dental technology so we can provide our patients with faster, safer, and more efficient care.
Our Advanced Diagnostic Technology
A dental impression is a model of the patient’s smile that dentists make so they can design your treatment plan. In the past, dentists would have to fill the patient’s mouth with a putty-like material that hardens to create an actual physical model of your smile. Then they would mail this model to a dental laboratory that uses it to create your restoration.
Dr. Grussmark takes dental impressions the quick and easy way with our Cadent 3D Scanner from Itero. The Itero scanner features a wand with a tiny camera that generates a digital impression of your teeth and other dental structures that’s viewable on a computer screen.
For Invisalign patients, the Cadent 3D Scanner produces extremely accurate digital impressions that we email directly to Invisalign so they can start making your custom aligners right away, speeding up the process considerably.
Dr. Grussmark also uses panoramic x-rays, which is a special type of x-ray that creates a single image of the entire mouth, including the upper and lower jaws and the TMJ region. This view of your smile helps us provide you with a more accurate diagnosis and better treatment planning.
Invisalign–Straighten Your Smile Fast Without Metal Braces
Dr. Grussmark also features cutting edge treatment technology to provide you with the best options for fixing your smile. For example, we feature Invisalign, clear thermoplastic aligners that straighten your smile up to twice as fast as traditional metal braces.
Invisalign’s exclusive SmartTrack® technology gradually shifts your teeth to the perfect alignment, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign won’t restrict your diet because you simply remove your aligners when it’s time to eat.
Our Advanced Treatment Technology
Acceledent is a painless way for patients who are undergoing orthodontic care to speed up their course of treatment. It’s a portable device that you only have to use for 20 minutes a day. Acceledent produces tiny vibrations that painlessly accelerate tooth movement, making your overall treatment time up to fifty percent faster.
Providing early orthodontic screening for kids has a lot of advantages. In fact, children as young as seven can benefit from orthodontic care. In many cases, we can anticipate issues and start treating them earlier, which helps make the process a lot easier.
Dentofacial Orthopedics are oral appliances that gradually guide the facial growth of your child. This is designed to assist tooth movement. If it turns out your child requires braces or another type of orthodontic treatment down the road, dentofacial orthopedics will make the process easier and less time-consuming.
