Cutting Edge Technology
Our office is technologically advanced in the field of orthodontics. We offer computer check in services, digital imaging and housecalls (a computer generated phone reminder system for appointments). There are new and exciting treatment options in orthodontics today. We offer Invisalign treatment (which is a series of clear plastic aligners) for less difficult treatment plans. We offer metal or clear self ligating brackets which use lighter forces to move the teeth in a gentler manner. We have been very pleased with the results and our patients benefit in the following ways:
- Less discomfort
- Appointments are typically 6-8 weeks apart instead of every 4 weeks (fewer visits required during treatment)
- Appointments are usually easier and quicker
- The brackets are smaller and more esthetically pleasing
- Easier to keep clean
Our goal is to provide quality orthodontics at a fair fee. Multiple financial plans are available from which to choose. Treatment fees and payment options will also be reviewed at this visit.
The orthodontic records provide information not always revealed through a visual exam and they form the basis for a thorough diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. After Dr. Cantor has evaluated this data, he will review your case and design a custom treatment plan for you.
If Dr. Cantor feels you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment but are not ready to commence treatment right away we will place you into our pre-orthodontic guidance program (there is no fee for this program). We will evaluate you every 6-9 months to monitor tooth and jaw development and determine when the optimum stage has been reached to begin active treatment.
