Braces aren’t like they used to be. Ceramic braces are constructed of a translucent material that camouflages the brackets on your teeth. If you are looking for braces without the “metal-mouth” appearance, you may want to consider clear ceramic braces.
Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners created from sophisticated 3-D imaging technology. They are comfortable, removable and invisible. Invisalign is a popular choice for adults who are ultimately concerned about the appearance of braces during normal daily activities. Ask Dr. Parkinson if Invisalign is right for you.
Nickel-Titanium-Alloy Arch Wires
These have replaced the traditional stainless steel wires used in braces. This new technology provides our patients with a temperature-sensitive wire that allows for continuous movement of the teeth over longer periods of time. For our patients, this means enhanced comfort, decreased treatment time and fewer trips to the orthodontist.
We use the latest in digital imaging and education software to diagnose your orthodontic needs and explain your proposed treatment. Dr. Parkinson feels it is very important that you understand fully your treatment, and this technology allows us to more clearly explain your needs.
It is our goal to provide patients with optimum orthodontic care, which includes the highest standards in sterilization. When you visit our office, you can be assured that safety is our highest concern. That is why our instruments are autoclave sterilized between every patient. We always use disposable materials when possible and our sterilization systems are tested monthly by an independent biological monitoring service. In addition, our office only uses high-quality brackets, bands and wires.
Orthodontic Infection Control
We take great pride in meeting and exceeding all requirements of the Centers for Disease Control, Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Environmental Protection Agency for Infection Control procedures in an orthodontic environment. We truly believe that a healthy office is a happy office.
