Technology

At Petty & Bielik Orthodontics, we understand that every new technological advance is an opportunity to provide you with better orthodontic care. Our office works hard to ensure that everyone who walks through our doors is treated with the most advanced, up-to-date orthodontic technology. We celebrate continuing education and orthodontic advancement because we know that our commitment to technology is a commitment to you!

Some of the technologies that we offer include the iTero® Element scanner, cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator, and virtual consultations.

iTero scanner: This hand-held wand is capable of digitally capturing the structure of your teeth and gums, creating realistic and accurate 3D images within minutes for viewing. iTero replaces the old technique of using molds, which frequently resulted in multiple rounds of impressions that are uncomfortable to take, messy, or rejected by the lab. The iTero can be used multiple times, is highly accurate, and is useful for many orthodontic treatments. No more struggles with that time-consuming, sticky goop from the past!

Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT): New CBCT imaging technology allows us to capture information about the jaws, soft tissues, nerves, and tooth structures in 3D—without exposing patients to excessive radiation. CBCT imaging is faster than traditional dental scans, provides more detail, and is safer.

The Invisalign® Outcome Simulator: With iTero and the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator, we can show you what your smile transformation will look like—before you begin treatment!

Virtual consultations: Interested in orthodontic treatment but unable to come in for an appointment? We proudly offer virtual consultations on our website. Simply visit the website, fill out some information, upload photos of your smile, and we’ll do the rest. After assessing your smile, we’ll create a custom treatment plan based on your needs, goals, and preferences. Enjoy a full orthodontic consultation from the comfort of your home!
