Orthodontic technology has dramatically evolved just in the past decade! If you had braces 10 years ago or more, you will notice how different the process is now on your very first visit! DiFranco Orthodontics made a commitment many years ago to always keep up with the most current in cutting-edge technology.

These include:

  • Digital X-Rays – One of the most advanced diagnostic tools, this system uses a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film, and uses significantly less radiation. This makes the dental x-ray process faster, more convenient, and comfortable. Its high-quality images provide us with more efficient and accurate diagnoses and care.
  • Itero Intraoral Scanner – For the best, fastest, and most accurate dental impressions and no more goopy molds.
