At Okuda & Noorda Orthodontics, we strive to stay on the cutting edge of our industry. The field of orthodontics has developed and evolved significantly over the years and we’re proud to say that we’ve stayed ahead of the curve. We offer the best orthodontic treatment options and use the latest technology to help our patients achieve beautiful smiles more efficiently and effectively.
When you come to our Henderson orthodontic practice to straighten your smile, you can trust that you’re getting the very best care. Starting from your first consultation with Dr. Okuda or Dr. Noorda, all the way to the end of treatment and beyond, we use top-of-the-line orthodontic technologies to give you the results you deserve. Curious about how we use technology at Okuda & Noorda Orthodontics? Read on!
1. We Have an In-House Lab
It goes without saying that our patients are our top priority. Part of our service promise to you is to provide the most efficient, effective and comfortable treatment we can. Our in-house lab allows us to offer quicker care, so you can enjoy your new smile sooner than if we had to go to an external source. We’ve streamlined the orthodontic process to make sure our patients can get back to living their lives as soon as possible.
2. We Offer Damon Braces
Traditional braces are no longer your only option for straightening your teeth. Nowadays, you have the choice between many different — and equally effective — methods of treatment. One of our favorite types of orthodontic treatments is the Damon Smile System, a special type of self-ligating braces that provides faster treatment times, better comfort and improved results.
Damon braces are fitted in the same way as traditional braces and they look pretty similar too, so you might be wondering what’s the difference between Damon braces and traditional braces. But instead of using brackets that require regular adjustments by your orthodontist, Damon braces use a slide mechanism to connect your wires and brackets, allowing your braces to move freely with your teeth as they shift into place. With Damon braces, you can also choose between metal or clear brackets, so you can get exactly what you want. Learn more about why we love Damon braces here.
3. We’re Experts in Invisalign
If you’ve ever considered orthodontics, chances are you’ve heard of Invisalign. This state-of-the-art system uses clear, plastic aligners to gradually guide your teeth into the ideal position. Starting with a complimentary consultation, your orthodontist will take photos of your teeth and jaw to get a clearer idea of what’s happening in your mouth. Then we’ll take 3D x-rays and digital scanes of your mouth with our i-CAT™ imaging system and iTero® scanner (we’ll talk about these in a second!). We use these tools to map out your treatment plan and we can even show you what your smile will look like every step of the way. Then we send your data directly to Invisalign where your custom aligners will be made. It’s a high-tech process that leads to maximum results. Cool, right?
But we haven’t even mentioned the best part. As the name suggests, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible! You can straighten your teeth without braces and continue to live your life the way you want. No rules about what you can and cannot eat, no sharp metal or poking wires. Okuda & Noorda Orthodontics is a leading Invisalign provider in Henderson, so you know you’re in good hands.
4. We Use Advanced i-CAT™ Imaging
Let’s get back to that i-CAT™ imaging system we talked about. This 3D x-ray technology is truly the gold standard in orthodontic treatment planning. The i-CAT™ machine takes highly accurate scans of the head area to help us diagnose your issue and create an effective, customized plan to perfect your bite. In just 10 seconds, we get an incredible wealth of data that we can then use to chart out the progression of your smile, guaranteeing you get the most accurate results.
5. We Have an iTero® Scanner
Remember the iTero® scanner we mentioned? This is one of the most useful diagnostic tools when it comes to creating an Invisalign treatment plan. A certified partner of Invisalign, iTero® intraoral scanners provide valuable information that we can use to build a 3D model of your mouth. They also allow orthodontists to show patients the projected outcome of their treatment. This means you don’t have to wait until the end of treatment to see your new smile — you can get a clear picture of exactly how you’ll look from day one!
At Okuda & Noorda Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on providing truly customized care to our Henderson and Las Vegas orthodontic patients. By using high-tech diagnostics and computerized treatment planning, we’re able to create a custom smile based on your unique facial features without extracting teeth.
