Thanks to advances in technology and scientific research, orthodontic treatment has come a long way. Dr. Skelton and her staff are committed to staying on top of the latest developments and technologies to provide you with the best care possible.
Besides using modern techniques such as Invisalign®, clear braces and self-litigating systems (which improve comfort), our entire process is high-tech. We plan your treatment using digital images and x-rays scanned directly into our computer system to help you better understand your treatment plan.
Skelton Orthodontics has a new and better way to take impressions! Dr. Skelton has invested in a new technology called iTero in her office to create a more enjoyable patient experience. With iTero, there is no need for the goo, and it is 50% faster than traditional impressions. iTero involves the orthodontic assistant using a wand to create a 3D digital scan of your teeth. Not only is the technology faster, it is more accurate and more comfortable for you!

In addition to the iTero scanner, we use a 3D printer to print models of your teeth and to make retainers in house. How neat is that? This is yet another use of technology to make the process faster and more comfortable for our patients.
