We were having a chat recently, and were amazed that between us all, Matt, Emily and Graeme have over 45 years’ collective experience in orthodontics!
But what has changed through the years? Orthodontics continues to develop and evolve, with new ideas and technologies being developed all the time. It really is amazing just how far we’ve come. New brackets, wires, tubes (so fewer molar bands); bonding adhesives and cements; effective functional appliances; impression materials; vacuum formed retainers (with new thoughts on retention regimes); digital photos (not 35mm slides), digital x-rays, computer software; lingual appliances, aligners; temporary anchorage devices: the list goes on and on!
As you would expect, Lincoln Orthodontics continues to strive to be at the forefront of all of the latest developments. Recently, we have started to take digital scans of our patients’ mouths, making the old style impressions a thing of the past. Our iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. Additionally, having digital images allows us to give you a preview of how your new smile might look!
So, if the thought of impressions is making you think twice about orthodontic treatment, Lincoln Orthodontics is now able to do digital impressions.
No goop, no gag, no worries.
