At Kahan Orthodontics, our mission is to create your most beautiful smile in a personal, relaxed setting. Our office pledge is to use the most advanced technology to ensure your optimum results.
iTero Intraoral Scanner
We are pleased to introduce our new iTero Scanner. Our new digital scanner allows us to capture a digital mold of your teeth in minutes, without the use of impression material. The iTero Scanner utilizes laser and optical scanning to digitally capture the surface and contours of the tooth and gum structure in amazing detail.
It is no longer necessary to take impressions of the teeth in order to start Invisalign treatment. Instead, Dr. Kahan can now export digital data directly to Invisalign for faster case turn-around and less waiting time for your first set of aligners. These scanned images are much more accurate than impressions, and the aligners made from the scans fit more accurately.
It has been found that biting onto a vibrating mouthpiece for 20 minutes per day can reduce the time of orthodontic treatment by 30-50%. For those patients who want to speed up their results, we offer AcceleDent. AcceleDent is a simple-to-use, hands-free device designed for faster orthodontic treatment which can be easily used while watching TV, studying or working on the computer.
Digital Photographs and X-Rays
Our Planmeca Scanner is a digital x-ray machine for taking panoramic and lateral cephalometric images with low radiation.The quick and accurate scanner provides real-time digital scans of one-tooth or the full-arch. And because our records are all digital, they are available for review within minutes, when needed, and are easily transferred and shared with your General Dentist.
