Advanced Orthodontic Technology

Orthodontic technology has greatly advanced over the years, always moving toward one goal: giving patients better experiences and outcomes. Our team at DiFranco Orthodontics uses tools such as the following to diagnose and treat problems.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are a key technology for diagnostic purposes. Also known as digital radiographs, they provide our team with a look at the state of your teeth, roots, and jaw. X-rays can help detect issues such as tooth decay and cysts as well as bone loss from periodontal disease. Abscesses and problems with tooth positioning may also come to light thanks to X-rays. Today’s digital X-ray technology produces relatively little radiation and is considered quite safe.

Itero Intraoral Scanner

Intraoral cameras are an orthodontic technology whose benefits are readily apparent to both orthodontists and patients. Today’s intraoral cameras are unobtrusive and are able to give doctors a look inside a patient’s mouth by producing high-quality digital images. Like X-rays, they can help detect a range of problems, including soft tissue lesions and broken teeth. Magnification helps orthodontists spot problems that may otherwise escape the naked eye. Because these images are easy to show to patients, they can help patients in Park Ridge understand what’s going on in their mouths.

Technology and Your Oral Health

Our orthodontists may have other technological implements at their disposal as well. Such tools provide even more benefits when they’re combined with a regular schedule of orthodontic visits and good oral hygiene at home. Contact our office in Park Ridge today to learn how breakthroughs in technology can help with your oral health.
