Technology

At Wilson Orthodontics, it is our philosophy to offer our patients a complete orthodontic experience through the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment methods and superior service on the way to your broad and beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of! We have been told by our patients and referring dentists that Wilson Orthodontics provides the most thorough orthodontic evaluations and the best treatment results in the Central Susquehanna Valley. Read below to learn about just a few of the innovative technologies we have here at Wilson Orthodontics.

Digital Impression Scanner

Our digital impression scanner replaces the uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions. No bulky trays or sticky putty needed!

Using a digital scanner, we will take three-dimensional (3-D) digital images, or impressions, of your teeth and bite. These impressions are then used at a lab where they will custom-fabricate a model of your teeth.

The digital impressions and the model will help us formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific orthodontic needs and desires. We can also use them to visually show you your treatment options and help us keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress.

After your specific treatment plan has been chosen, the digital impressions allow us to create customized expanders and other appliances with increased efficiency and overall effectiveness.

Digital X-rays

In order to provide the highest quality orthodontics, we use digital radiographs, or X-rays, in our office. These images are produced instantly. These X-rays can also be enhanced on the computer and enlarged.

Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs reduce a patient’s radiation exposure by 90%!

CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography)

There currently is a paradigm shift to cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) occurring in the oral health industry. For Dr. Wilson, it is important to have the ability to capture a variety of images so that he may develop the most comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plans for his patients. Our Carestream CS 9300 cone beam radiographic instrument serves as an all-purpose extraoral imaging solution, allowing him to capture 2D panoramic and cephalometric images and 3D cone beam images as well. In addition, the 3D CBCT is low-dose imaging (76% less than a standard 2D panoramic image).

Before CBCT, orthodontists had to make a diagnosis and treatment decisions without seeing teeth and bone with 3D clarity. The 3D images depict the anatomy 1:1 accuracy. Dr. Wilson can see how roots interface with each other and the level of bone surrounding teeth. This improved level of detail helps him develop a more accurate treatment plan for his patients.

Damon® System

The Damon 3 bracket offers several benefits for patients. It is made from stainless steel for stability and a clear material for aesthetics. The rounded structure improves patient comfort while maintaining overall performance.

The Damon 3 System uses a self-ligation technique using lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move teeth, while resulting in faster treatment times due to its slide mechanism, strong, mechanical base bonding and solid walls structured to control tooth movement with speed and efficiency.

In addition to greater comfort, the Damon System makes it easier to maintain good hygiene because it’s easier to keep clean. This contributes to greater health, happiness and physical attractiveness for the duration of patient treatment
