We take great pride in providing our patients with high-quality care using the most advanced technologies available! We believe our precise combination of knowledge, skill and revolutionary technologies enables us to deliver optimum results for each patient.
We are proud to utilize high-resolution digital x-rays, or radiographs, to capture detailed images of your teeth, jaws and bite. We use high-tech computer software to generate sharp, accurate images of your mouth, and it’s significantly faster than traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays are more environmentally friendly, and they are much safer for patients than traditional x-rays, reducing radiation exposure by up to an estimated 90 percent. Our x-ray machine is safe, comfortable, quiet and painless.
Digital Intraoral Scanner
Our iTero Element intraoral scanner is used to make digital images of your teeth. These radiation-free scans replace the uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy traditional impressions. They are significantly more accurate and produce much better fitting appliances.
Using the digital scanner, we will take 3-D images of your teeth and bite. These scans are then electronically sent to our orthodontic lab where they will custom-fabricate your needed orthodontic appliances, such as retainers.
Also, our doctors use the scan to virtually move your teeth and jaws to help diagnose and treatment plan complex cases, such as jaw surgery and other surgical procedures. We can use these scans to communicate with other dental professionals to formulate proper treatment plans.
We can also use these scans to visually show our patients our pre-treatment orthodontic problems and discuss treatment options. Our progress scans help us keep patient and parents up-to-date on treatment progress.
Our office uses all-electronic paperless patient and treatment charting. This system boasts many advantages over traditional paper-based charting. For one, appointments are faster and with shorter wait times. Additionally, sensitive patient health and financial information is encrypted in our cloud-based management software, thus more secure and private. Transferring and sharing important patient information with other medical and dental offices is also quicker and more efficient. Plus, all-digital paperless charting is friendlier to the environment, minimizes paper waste and keeps a clean office environment. Paperless charting is just one more example of how our office is dedicated to using the latest technology to make your appointments as safe and efficient as possible.
With the communication needs of our practice growing more complex, we want to provide efficient ways to stay better connected with our patients. We are excited to offer a convenient smartphone app for iPhone and Android devices, branded and customized for our office.
Through this app, patients and parents have 24/7 secure access to their appointment and financial information. It provides the ability to e-mail or text our office, check-in remotely for appointments, as well as the ability to view the patient's photographs and x-rays.
The app is free to download from the Apple Store and Google Play. Just search "pezza orthodontics."
InVisit Virtual Consultations and Appointments
We have developed an online portal for virtual consultations called inVisit. From your smartphone, patients and parents have the ability to email and text our doctors and share photos of the patient's teeth directly with our doctors. Another way we are trying to keep our patients safe and still provide our expertise.
