These changes in orthodontics have improved patient care greatly. Dr Kenworthy is at the forefront of this change. We have an integrated digital office which makes fully customizable treatment faster, more comfortable, and precise while staying within your budget.
The most important step in orthodontics is making the right plan. In order to formulate the most custom diagnosis and treatment plan, each patient receives a 3D digital x-ray of their jaws. This emits less radiation than the old flat X-rays and yields more diagnostic information. Dr Kenworthy discusses all radiographic findings with each patient and explains which teeth may need treatment and why.
An ultra accurate 3D video scan of your teeth and gums is then obtained, giving Dr Kenworthy a digital 3D model of each of your teeth. This system is far more precise than the goop-and-plaster representations orthodontists used in the 80's.
The scanned file is uploaded to software that we use to move your teeth to their ideal positions and see the precise measurements required to perfect your smile.
Finally, these files of your teeth are 3D printed in our office in about 30 minutes. The retainers and aligners produced by this process allow your treatment to be as short and comfortable as possible. Some treatments can be done in as little as 6 months.
