A technology which has been over 10 years in the making is taking the orthodontic field by storm. Insignia is a concept whereby a highly accurate impression of a patients teeth are scanned by a Cat Scan Machine & uploaded into a 3D computer software program. Once scanned into the software, the teeth are aligned into an ideal fit and aesthetic positions to enhance the smile. Braces are then custom made for each specific tooth movement and correction which enhance treatment results and decreases over all treatment time. Additionally, the software program also makes custom patient specific wires which work in conjunction with the custom braces, delivering optimal forces and positioning toward a fantastic final result. The combination of High Tech tooth positioning in 3D, custom braces, and custom wires makes for fewer appointments and a decrease in over all treatment time. Doesn’t this sound great?
