At Lach Orthodontic Specialists, we don’t like to take any chances. That’s why we use 3D computer modeling. We take the guesswork out of braces by using precise 3D models to pinpoint the optimal positioning of brackets and wires so patients receiving braces can experience quick, optimized treatments. Our 3D computer designed braces are created using sophisticated imaging and simulation technology. This software creates a virtual model of your teeth and jaw and virtually applies braces to this model.
Located in Lake Nona and Oviedo, Lach Orthodontic Specialists is dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality of orthodontic treatment. If you would like more information about our practice or are interested in scheduling a consultation, contact us today.
The process of creating 3D computer designed braces begins with taking a Precision 3D scan of your teeth. After this scan has been taken, Dr. Lach can start to experiment virtually with different placement options.
Dr. Lach begins this experimentation by placing brackets on the virtual model of your teeth. He then installs orthodontic wires on this model. Once this is done, Dr. Lach can run a simulation to see what position your teeth will be in if your brackets and wires are kept in these same places over different phases of your treatment period. The process can be completed in just a few seconds.
The simulation allows Dr. Lach to make any necessary adjustments to the positioning of brackets and wires on the model until your teeth are straight. These digital adjustments can save you from many of the routine adjustment appointments that are required at other orthodontic practices because braces designed through 3D computer techniques result in up to 30% faster results. This translates into time and money saved on your part.
Once Dr. Lach has found the right setup for your braces, he sends the model to a high-tech 3D printer that prints out a molded tray. This tray helps the doctor administer your braces in the same position that worked best on the 3D model.
3D computer designed braces are just a small portion of what sets Lach Orthodontic Specialists apart from other orthodontic practices. Our compassionate and dedicated team is committed to making the process of transforming your smile fun, memorable, and as easy as possible.
