Digital Models

We use the best state-of-the-art technology available to help create the desired smile, which is why we use digital models. Digital modeling allows us to create three-dimensional digital model of your teeth, which help us keep you informed of your treatment options and progress, while also providing you with optimal results.

Some benefits of digital models over traditional study model materials include:

  • Accuracy: they require fewer appointments.
  • Efficiency: they require less time in the treatment chair.
  • Customizability: they provide a digital plan and allow for trays that are tailored to meet the individual needs and desires of each patient.
  • Visualization: they provide each patient with a picture of what their teeth will look like following treatment.
  • Innovation: they use the most advanced 3-D video technologies.

Invisalign

Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using clear aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

Dr. Tepper-Adler is one of the few orthodontists in Victoria who have gained extensive experience using this new revolutionary method. She received her Platinum Provider status in 2008. After treating many types of conditions with variable levels of severity, she was invited to lecture to dentists and orthodontists both in Australia and overseas on this subject.

Many of Dr. Tepper-Adler’s patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign.

OrthoCAD®

Utilizing the OrthoCAD iQ system, we can create customized bracket trays and get an accurate preview of your new teeth alignment before the braces come off. Best of all, we can fit braces faster and easier, which means you’ll enjoy reduced treatment time and fewer office visits.

First, a detailed 3-D image is taken of your teeth. Once the image appears on the screen, it is adjusted and refined several treatment options to create the smile of your dreams!

Once you and Dr. Tepper-Adler agree upon a specific outcome, the information is sent electronically to the OrthoCAD Center where professional technicians will manufacture your bracket trays.

Once your trays are received, fitting your braces will be a breeze! And because of the accuracy of the OrthoCAD iQ system, you are likely to spend less time in your braces.

 

AcceleDent

We now offer AcceleDent, an accelerated treatment option that you use at home.

A light, comfortable hands-free appliance used 20 minutes per day as a complement to the Orthodontic treatment by accelerating tooth movement.

Acceledent is an orthodontic micropulse device to help your orthodontic treatment work faster. AcceleDent generates small vibrations — micropulses — that accelerate the changing (or remodeling) of the tooth location guided by your orthodontics. This means orthodontic treatments go faster, and having more comfort during treatment.
