As a fourth-generation dentist, Dr. Holland learned quite a bit about taking care of people’s smiles well before he ever stepped foot into dental school. In addition to personalizing everyone’s treatment, he saw just how important technology is to deliver the highest quality care possible. That’s why he is constantly investing in our orthodontic office and learning about the latest advancements so he can consistently bring them to our patients. When you come to Ortega Orthodontics, you can trust you’re getting the very best that dentistry has to offer!
Thanks to our iTero Digital Scanner, we no longer take impressions of the teeth using cold and odd-tasting dental putty. Instead, we just scan the teeth with a small device that looks like a large pen, and in less than 5 minutes, it captures thousands of unique images that can be stitched together to form a digital 3D model of the teeth. Compared to the traditional techniques, this approach is faster, more comfortable, and even more accurate!
Digital X-rays enable us to spot issues hidden beneath the gum line so we can address them as early as possible, and when you compare them to traditional film X-rays, there actually is no comparison. The images are sharper, they take much less time to develop, they don’t require the use of toxic chemicals, and they even emit up to 90% LESS radiation, giving parents with small children an important peace of mind.
