Digital Impression Scanners
Impression scanners are the latest in digital dentistry and are the standard of care at Grubaugh Orthodontics. One of our assistants slides the scanner across your teeth to create a highly accurate and precise 3D digital model of your teeth.
This technology Precisely Captures Accurate 3D Views
Ultra Low Dose 3D X-Rays
Grubaugh Orthodontics has implemented ultra-low dose 3D x-ray technology at both our DeWitt and Lansing offices. This allows Dr. Grubaugh to precisely capture accurate 3D views of the teeth and the jaws at 75% LESS exposure compared to 2D low dosage digital orthodontic x-rays. 3D x-rays give more accurate and undistorted views to diagnosis and treatment plan with a greater amount of precision in comparison to a traditional 2D x-ray machine. The scan allows us to visualize any abnormalities in tooth eruption, tooth formation, and tooth position with unparalleled accuracy. The views of the patient go beyond just the teeth but provide views of the patient's airways.
Correct Your Bite
The Carriere Motion Appliance is an orthodontic device developed to correct the bite and avoid the need for headgear, jaw surgery and removal of permanent teeth. With an effect similar to headgear, but without the use of a bulky appliance, the Carriere Motion Appliance pushes upper teeth back to correct the bite.
Speed Up Tooth Movement
Dr. Grubaugh offers AcceleDent. With this technology patients use a mouthpiece – fitted around their existing orthodontics – and use an Activator for 20 minutes every day. The AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement by its small vibrations, or micropulses, allowing for faster tooth movement. Faster tooth movement decreases your time in treatment and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
